ALPHABETICAL  LIST 


OF 


REVOLUTIONARY  SOLDIERS. 


1TT5-1783. 


[The  following  alphabetical  List  of  Soldiers  of  the  War  for  Indepen- 
dence has  been  compiled  chiefly  from  the  Depreciation  Account  books 
in  the  office  of  the  Auditor  General  of  Pennsylvania.  It  is  difficult  to 
distinguish  between  those  of  the  Line,  the  Association,  Rangers,  or  Mil- 
itia and  many  of  them,  no  doubt,  appear  in  the  rolls  already  published ; 
yet  it  has  been  deemed  proper  to  print  this  list  as  it  is.  It  contains 
nearly  ten  thousand  names,  and,  as  will  be  seen  hereafter,  but  a  small 
proportion  of  those  heroes  who  gave  us  the  heritage  of  liberty  and  free 
government  wo  enjoy.]

ADDRESS  OF  THE  COMMITTEE  OF  CONFERENCE 


To  the  Associntors  of  Pennsylvania,  June  25,  1776. 


Gentlemen  :  Tlie  only  design  of  our  meeting  together  was  to 
put  an  end  to  our  own  power  in  the  Province  by  fixing  upon  a  plan 
for  calling  a  couveutiou  to  form  a  government  under  the  authority 
of  the  people.  But  the  sudden  and  unexpected  separation  of  the 
Assembly  has  compelled  us  to  undertake  the  execution  of  a  resolve 
of  Congress  for  calling  forth  4,5U0  of  the  militia  of  the  Province  to 
join  the  militia  of  tlie  neighboring  colonies  to  form  a  camp  for  our 
immediate  protection.  We  presume  only  to  recommend  the  plan 
we  have  formed  to  you,  trusting  that  in  case  of  so  much  consequence 
your  love  of  virtue  and  zeal  for  liberty  will  supply  the  want  of  au- 
thority delegated  to  us  expressly  for  that  purpose. 

We  need  not  remind  you  that  j'ou  are  now  furnished  with  new 
motives  to  animate  and  support  your  courage.  You  are  not  about 
to  contend  against  the  power  of  Great  Britain  in  order  to  displace 
one  set  of  villains  to  make  room  for  another.  Your  arms  will  not 
be  enervated  in  the  day  of  battle  with  the  reflection  that  you  are 
to  risk  your  lives  or  shed  your  blood  for  a  British  tyrant,  or  that 
your  posterity  will  have  your  work  to  do  over  again.  You  are  about 
to  contend  for  permanent  freedom,  to  be  supported  by  a  government 
which  will  be  derived  from  yourselves,  and  which  will  have  for  its 
object  not  the  enrollment  of  one  man,  or  class  of  men  only,  but  the 
safety,  liberty,  and  happiness  of  every  individual  in  the  community. 

We  call  upon  you,  tiierefore,  by  the  respect  and  obedience  which 
are  due  to  the  authority  of  the  United  Colonies,  to  concur  in  this 
important  measure.  Tlie  present  campaign  will  probably  decide 
tlie  fate  of  America.  It  is  now  in  your  power  to  immortalize  your 
names  by  mingling  your  achievements  with  the  events  of  the  year 
1776— a  year  which  we  hope  will  be  famed  in  the  annals  of  history 
to  the  end  of  time,  for  establishing  upon  a  lasting  foundation  the 
liberties  of  one  quarter  of  the  globe. 

Remember  the  honor  of  our  Colony  is  at  stake.  Should  you  de- 
sert the  common  cause  at  the  present  juncture,  the  glory  you  have 
acquired  by  your  former  exertions  of  strength  and  virtue  will  be 
tarnished,  and  our  friends  and  brethern  who  are  now  acquiring 
laurels  in  the  most  remote  parts  of  America  will  reproacli  us  and 
blush  to  own  themselves  natives  or  inhabitants  of  Pennsylvania. 
But  there  are  other  motives  before  you— your  liouses,  your  fields, 
the  legacies  of  your  ancestors,  or  the  dear-bought  fruits  of  your  own 
industry  and  your  liberty-now  urge  you  to  the  field.    These  can- 


260  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

not  plead  with  you  in  vain,  or  we  might  point  out  to  you  further— 
your  wives,  your  children,  your  aged  fathers  and  mothers,  who  now 
look  up  to  you  for  aid  and  hope  for  salvation  in  this  day  of  calamity 
only  from  the  instrumentality  of  your  swords.  Remember  the 
name  of  Pennsylvania.  Think  of  your  ancestors  and  of  your  pos- 
terity

THE  LANCASTER  RESOLVES. 


Pursuant  to  tlie  publication  of  the  resolves  of  the  Committee  of 
Correspondence  for  tlie  city  and  county  of  Philadelphia,  there  was 
held  a  meeting  of  a  very  respectable  number  of  the  freemen  and  in- 
habitants of  the  county  of  Lancaster,  on  Saturday,  the  9th  of  July, 
1774,  George  Ross,  Esq.,  in  the  chair. 

This  assembly,  taking  into  tlieir  serious  consideration  the  several 
late  acts  of  the  British  Parliament  relative  to  America,  came  un- 
animously to  the  following  declarations  and  resolves,  viz : 

1.  We  do  sincerely  profess  and  declare,  that  his  most  gracious 
Majesty  King  George  the  Third  is  our  rightful  and  lawful  sover- 
eign, and  that  we  will  at  all  times  support  and  defend  him  to  the 
utmost  of  our  power,  with  our  lives  and  fortunes,  against  his  ene- 
mies. 

2.  We  do  further  declare  that  no  power  is  constitutionally  lodged 
in  the  hands  of  any  body  of  men  to  give  and  grant  our  money,  save 
only  our  representatives  in  assembly,  who  have  at  all  times  cheer- 
fully granted  aids  to  his  Majesty  whenever  he  has  made  a  requisi- 
tion from  them. 

3.  Tiiat  the  acts  of  the  British  Parliament  for  divesting  us  of 
such  right,  and  assuming  such  iiower  to  themselves,  are  unconstitu- 
tional, unjust,  and  oppressive, 

4.  That  it  is  an  indispensable  duty  we  owe  to  ourselves  and  our 
posterity  to  oppose  with  decency  and  firmness  every  measure  tend- 
ing to  deprive  us  of  our  just  rights  and  privileges. 

5.  That  a  close  union  of  the  Colonies,  and  their  faithful  adhering 
to  such  measures  as  a  general  Congress  shall  judge  proper,  are  the 
most  likely  means  to  jirocure  redress  of  American  grievances  and 
settle  the  rights  of  the  Colonies  on  a  permanent  basis. 

6.  That  it  is  highly  expedient  to  appoint  a  committee,  to  meet  the 
committee  of  the  other  counties  of  this  Province  at  Philadelphia, 
on  the  loth  instant,  to  confer  with  them  on  the  important  matters 
mentioned  in  the  letter  from  the  chairman  of  the  committee  of 
Philadelphia. 

7.  That  we  will  sincerely  and  heartily  agree  to  and  abide  by  the 
measures  which  shall  be  adopted  by  the  members  of  the  general 
Congress  of  the  Colonies. 

8.  That  we  do  tenderly  sympathize  witli  our  brethren  of  Boston, 
who  are  suffering  in  the  American  cause  by  an  unconstitutional 
and  oppressive  act  of  the  British  Parliament,  called  the  Boston  Port 
Bill. 

9.  That  a  subscrii)tion  be  opened  for  the  relief  of  our  suffering 
brethren  there.

and  sent  to  Boston  towards  the  relief  of  tlieir  distresses.

Ervvin  be  the  committee  to  meet  and  consult  with  the  committees 
of  tlie  other  counties  of  this  Province  at  Philadelphia,  the  15th  in- 
stant, and  also  to  join  with  the  Committee  of  Correspondence  in 
receiving  subscriptions. 

It  was  tlien  moved  that  the  thanks  of  the  freemen  and  inhabi- 
tants present  siiould  be  rendered  to  the  worthy  chairman  for  the 
very  proper  and  spirited  address  made  by  him  to  this  assembly,  re- 
plete with  the  warmest  expressions  of  loyality  to  his  Majesty,  and 
fervent  zeal  for  the  common  interests  of  America,  which  motion 
was  agreed  to  by  a  general  holding  up  of  hands,  and  the  thanks 
of  the  assembly  were  then  presented  to  Mr.  Ross  for  his  patriotic 
conduct  upon  this  occasion. 

Ebeuiiart  Michael,

tiously as  possible  by  the  committee  and  laid  out  as  shall  be  thought 
best  to  answer  tlie  good  purpose  intended. 

A  paper  was  delivered  by  Mr.  Elijah  Wickersham  to  the  chairman

[The  full  proceedings  of  the  Committee  of  Observation  for  the 
county  of  Lancaster  were  in  existence  a  few  years  ago,  but  at  pre- 
sent cannot  be  found.  We  give,  however,  such  extracts  therefrom 
as  have  come  into  our  possession.] 


PROCEEDINGS. 

Lancaster,  June  15, 1774. 

In  pursuance  of  a  letter  written  by  Mr.  Charles  Tiiompson,  and 
sent  to  the  iniiabitants  of  this  borough,  directed  to  the  care  of  Mr. 
William  Atlee,  a  meeting  was  held  on  the  loth  day  of  June,  1774, 
and  the  following  resolves  were  agreed  on,  viz: 

At  a  meeting  of  tlie  inhabitants  of  the  borough  of  Lancaster,  at 
the  court  liouse  in  the  said  borough,  on  Wednesday,  the  15th  day 
of  June,  1774:  Agreed — that  to  preserve  the  constitutional  rights 
of  the  iniiabitants  of  America,  it-  is  incumbent  on  every  Colony  to 
unite  and  use  the  most  effectual  means  to  procure  a  repeal  of  the 
late  act  of  Parliament  against  the  town  of  Boston. 

That  the  act  of  Parliament  for  blocking  up  the  port  and  harbor 
of  Boston  is  an  invasion  of  the  riglits  of  the  inhabitants  of  the  said 
town,  as  subjects  of  tlie  crown  of  Great  Britain.  That  it  is  the 
opinion  of  tlie  iniiabitants  at  this  meeting  that  the  proper  and  ef- 
fectual means  to  be  used  to  obtain  a  repeal  of  tlie  said  act,  will  be 
to  put  an  immediate  stop  to  all  imports  and  exports,  to  and  from 
Great  Britain,  until  tiie  same  act  be  repealed. 

That  the  traders  and  inhabitants  of  this  town  will  join  and  con- 
cur with  tlie  patriotic  merchants,  tradesmen,  and  freeholders  of 
tlie  city  and  county  of  Philadelphia,  and  other  parts  of  this  Pro- 
vince, in  an  association  or  solemn  agreement  to  this  purpose,  if  the 
same  shall  be  by  them  thought  necessary. 

That  Edward  Shippen,  Esq.,  George  Ross,  Esq.,  Jasper  Yeates, 
Esq.,  Mattliias  Slough,  Esq.,  James  Webb,  Esq.,  William  Atlee, 
Esq.,  William  Henry,  Esq.,  Mr.  Ludwig  Lauman,  Mr.  William

the  Inhabitants  of  this  Town,  (at  which  a  great  number  attended) 
at  the  Court  House,  and  unanimously  gave  their  assent  to  the  Re- 
solves or  Agreement  inclosed.  As  taking  the  sentiments  of  the 
county  could  not  be  so  exjieditiously  done  by  having  a  general  Meet- 
ing of  the  Inhabitants,  we  tliought  best  to  give  you  those  of  the 
Town,  and  have  the  i)leasure  now  to  assure  you  that  the  Inhabi- 
tants of  the  county  in  general  begin  to  entertain  similar  opinions 
within  as  to  this  matter,  and  will  no  doubt  heartily  concur  in  them 
at  a  Meeting  which  we  shall  endeavor  as  soon  as  possible  to  have 
with  them.  We  hope  you  will  give  us  intelligence  of  any  matters 
worthy  of  notice,  and  be  assured  we  shall  do  everything  in  our 
power  to  promote  tlie  General  Interest.

North  America  is  the  most  probable  and  proper  mode  of  })rocuring 
relief  for  our  suffering  brethren,  obtaining  redress  of  American 
grievances,  securing  our  riglits  and  liberties,  and  rel'stablishing 
peace  and  harmony  between  Great  Britain  and  these  Colonies  on  a 
constitutional  foundation. 

"III.  That  a  large  and  respectable  committee  be  immediately 
appointed  for  the  city  and  county  of  Philadelphia,  to  correspond 
with  the  sister  Colonies  and  with  the  several  counties  in  this  Pro- 
vince, in  order  that  all  may  unite  in  promoting  and  endeavoring  to 
attain  the  great  and  valuable  ends  mentioned  in  the  foregoing  re- 
solution. 

"  IV.  That  the  committee  nominated  by  this  meeting  shall  con- 
sult together,  and  on  mature  deliberation  determine  what  is  the 
most  proi)er  mode  of  collecting  the  sense  of  this  Province,  and  ap- 
pointing deputies  for  the  same  to  attend  a  general  Congress;  and, 
having  determined  thereupon,  shall  take  such  measures,  as  by  them 
shall  be  judged  most  expedient,  for  procuring  this  Province  to  be 
represented  at  the  said  Congress,  in  the  best  manner  that  can  be 
devised  for  promoting  the  public  welfare. 

"  V.  That  the  committee  be  instructed  immediately  to  set  on 
foot  a  subscription  for  tlie  relief  of  such  poor  inhabitants  of  the 
town  of  Boston  as  may  be  deprived  of  the  means  of  subsistence  by 
the  operation  of  the  act  of  Parliament  commonly  styled  the  Boston

Port  Bill— the  money  arising  from  such  subscriptions  to  be  laid  out 
as  the  committee  shall  tliink  will  best  answer  the  ends  proposed. 

'•VI.  That  the  committee  consist  of  forty-three  persons,  viz: 
John  Dickinson,  Edward  Pennington,  John  Nixon,  Tliomas  Will,

of  the  propositions  that  had  been  prepared  for  the  meeting  on  Sat- 
urday, the  18th  inst.,  and  before  they  were  put  up  separately,  the 
Rev.  Dr.  Smith  made  the  following  short  address,  which  is  published 
at  the  desire  of  many  : 

''  Gentlemen  :  The  occasion  of  this  meeting  has  been  fully  ex- 
plained to  you,  and  sundry  propositions  read,  which  are  now  to  be 
separately  offered  for  your  approbation  or  disapprobation.  But  be- 
fore you  proceed  to  this  business,  it  has  been  thought  proper  to 
submit  a  few  things  to  your  good  judgment,  with  respect  to  the  or- 
der and  decorum  necessai-y  to  be  observed  in  the  discussion  of  every 
question.  ' 

"  It  need  not  be  repeated  to  you  that  matters  of  the  highest  con- 
sequence to  the  happiness  of  this  Province,  nay  of  all  British 
America,  depend  upon  your  deliberations  this  day — perhaps  noth- 
ing less  than  whether  the  breach  with  the  country  from  which  we 
descended  shall  be  irreparably  widened,  or  whether  ways  and  means 
upon  constitutional  grounds  may  not  yet  be  devised  for  closing  that 
breach,  and  restoring  that  harmony  from  whicl),  in  our  better  days, 
Great  Britain  and  her  colonies  derived  mutual  strengtii  and  glory, 
and  were  exalted  into  an  importance  that,  both  in  peace  and  war, 
made  them  the  envy  and  terror  of  the  neighboring  nations. 

"  While  subjects  sucli  as  these  are  agitated  before  us,  everytlnmi 
that  may  inflame  and  mislead  the  passions  should  be  cast  far  be- 
hind us.  A  cause  of  such  importance  and  magnitude  as  that  now 
under  our  deliberation,  is  not  to  be  conducted  to  its  true  issue  by 
any  heated  or  liasty  resolves,  nor  by  any  bitterness  and  animosities 
among  ourselves,  nor  even  perhaps  by  too  severe  a  recapitulation 
of  past  grievances,  but  require  the  temperate  and  enlightened  zeal 
of  the  patriot,  the  prudence  and  experience  of  tlie  aged,  the  strength 
of  mind  and  vigor  of  those  who  are  in  tlieir  prime  of  life,  and,  in 
short,  the  united  wisdom  and  efforts  of  all,  both  high  and  low, 


AXD  MILITIA  OF  THE  REVOLUTION.  279 

joining  hand  in  hand,  and  setting  foot  to  foot,  upon  the  firm  ground 
of  reason  and  tlie  constitution. 

"  Whenever  party  distinctions  begin  to  operate,  we  shall  give 
cause  of  triumph  to  those  who  may  be  watchful  as  well  as  power- 
ful to  abridge  us  of  our  native  right.  There  ought  to  be  no  party, 
no  contention  here,  but  who  shall  be  firmest  and  foremost  in  the 
common  cause  of  America.  Every  man's  sentiments  should  be 
freely  heard,  and  without  prejudice.  While  we  contend  for  liberty 
with  others,  let  us  not  refuse  liberty  to  each  other. 

"  Whatever  t'oie  is  known  to  be  now  passed,  upon  full  delibera- 
tion, and  by  the  unanimous  voice  of  this  great  city  and  county^ 
will  not  only  be  respected  through  all  America,  but  will  have  "such 
a  weight  as  the  proudest  Minister  in  England  may  have  reason  to 
respect.  But  if  it  is  known  to  be  a  divided  vote,  or  adopted  hastily 
on  some  angry  day,  it  will  only  be  injurious  to  our  own  cause. 

"  What  I  have  in  charge  to  request  of  you  is  this — tiiat  if,  on  any 
point,  W'e  should  have  a  difference  of  sentiments,  every  person  may 
be  allowed  to  speak  his  mind  freely,  and  to  conclude  what  lie  has  to 
offer,  without  any  such  outward  marks  of  approbation  or  disappro- 
bation as  clapjpimj  or  hissing,  and  that  if  a  division  sliould  be  nec- 
essary, (which  it  is  hoped  may  not  be  the  case  this  day.)  sucli  divi- 
sion may  be  made  in  the  manner  desired  by  the  chairman,  with  all 
possible  order  and  decorum. 

"  Tlie  following  is  a  copy  of  the  circular  letter  sent  by  tlie  com- 
mittee for  this  city  and  county  [Philadelphia]  to  the  different  coun- 
ties in  this  Province : 

"  PiiiLADELPniA,  June  2S,  117 J^. 

"  Gentlemen  :  The  Committee  of  Correspondence  for  this  city 
and  county  beg  leave  to  enclose  you  copies  of  the  resolves,  passed 
at  a  very  large  and  respectable  meeting  of  the  freeholders  and  free- 
men in  the  State  House  Square,  on  Saturday,  the  18th  inst.  By 
the  4th  of  those  resolves,  you  will  observe  that  it  was  left  for  the 
committee  "  To  determine  on  the  most  proper  mode  of  collecting 
the  sense  of  this  Province  in  the  present  critical  situation  of  our 
affairs,  and  appointhig  Deputies  to  attend  the  proposed  Congress.'''' 
In  pursuance  of  this  trust,  we  have,  upon  tlie  maturest  delibera- 
tion, determined  upon  the  mode  contained  in  the  two  follovving  pro- 
positions, which  we  hope  may  meet  with  the  approbation  and  con- 
currence of  your  respectable  county,  viz: 

"  1.  Tiiat  the  Speaker  of  the  Honorable  House  of  Reiireseiitatives 
be  desired  to  write  to  the  several  members  of  Assembly  in  this  Pro- 
vince, requesting  them  to  meet  in  tiiis  city  as  soon  as  i)ossible,  but 
not  later  than  the  1st  of  August  next,  to  take  into  their  considera- 
tion our  very  alarming  situation. 

"  2.  Tluit  letters  be  written  to  proper  persons  in  eacli  county,  re- 
commending it  to  them  to  get  committees  appointed  for  their  re- 


280  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

spective  counties,  and  that  tlie  said  comaiittees,  or  sucli  number  of 
them  as  may  be  thought  proper,  may  meet  in  Philadelphia  at.  the 
time  the  Kepresentatives  are  convened,  in  order  to  consult  and  ad. 
vise  on  the  most  expedient  mode  of  appointing  Deputies  for  the 
general  Congress,  and  to  give  tlieir  weight  to  such  as  may  be  ap- 
pointed. 

"The  Speaker  of  the  Assembly,  in  a  very  obliging  and  ready 
manner,  had  agreed  to  comply  with  the  request  in  the  former  of 
these  propositions,  but  we  are  now  informed  that,  on  account  of 
the  Indian  disturbances,  the  Governor  has  found  it  necessary  to  call 
the  Assembly  to  meet  in  their  legislative  capacity  on  Monday,  July 
18,  being  about  the  same  time  the  Speaker  would  probably  have  in- 
vited them  to  a  conference  or  convention  in  their  private  capacity. 

"  "What  we  have  therefore  to  request  is,  that  if  you  approve  of  the 
mode  expressed  in  the  second  proposition,  the  whole  or  part  of  the 
committee  appointed,  or  to  be  appointed  for  your  county,  will  meet 
committees  from  the  other  counties  at  Philadelphia,  on  Friday,  the 
15th  of  July,  in  order  to  assist  in  framing  instructions,  and  prepar- 
ing sucli  matters  as  may  be  proper  to  recommend  to  our  Represen- 
tatives at  their  meeting  the  Monday  following. 

"  We  trust  no  apology  is  necessary  for  the  trouble  we  propose 
giving  your  committee,  of  attending  at  Philadelphia  ;  as  we  are 
persuaded,  you  are  fully  convinced  of  the  necessity  of  the  closest 
union  among  ourselves  both  in  sentiment  and  action  ;  nor  can  such 
union  be  obtained  so  well  by  any  other  method  as  by  a  meeting  of 
the  county  committees  of  each  particular  Pi'ovince,  in  one  place, 
preparatory  to  the  general  Congress. 

"  We  would  not  offer  such  an  affront  to  the  well  known  public 
spirit  of  Pennsylvanians  as  to  question  your  zeal  on  the  present  oc- 
casion. Our  very  existence  in  the  rank  of  freemen,  and  the  se- 
curity of  all  that  ought  to  be  dear  to  us  evidently  depend  upon  our 
conducting  this  great  cause  to  its  proper  issue  by  firmness,  wisdom, 
and  unanimity.  We  cannot,  therefore,  doubt  your  ready  concur- 
rence in  every  measure  that  may  be  conducive  to  the  public  good ; 
and  it  is  with  pleasure  we  can  assure  you  that  all  the  Colonies,  from 
S.  Carolina  to  X.  Hampshire,  seem  animated  witli  one  spirit  in  the 
common  cause,  and  consider  this  as  the  proper  crisis  for  having  our 
differences  with  tiie  Mother  Country  brought  to  some  certain  issue, 
and  our  liberties  fixt  upon  a  permanent  foundation.  This  desirable 
end  can  only  be  accomplished  by  a  free  communion  of  sentiments 
and  a  sincere  fervent  regard  to  the  interests  of  our  common  coun- 
try. We  beg  to  be  favoui-ed  with  an  answer  to  this  and  whether 
the  committee  for  your  county  can  attend  at  Phila.,  at  the  time 
proposed. 

Signed  by  order  of  the  committee, 

Thomas  Willing,  C/jcimnan."

Lancasteu,  September  D,  1774. 
At  a  meeting  of  the  committee  of  the  county  of  Lancaster,  at 
Lancaster,  ou  tiie  9tli  September,  1774,  Edward  Sliippen,  Esq.,  in 

the  chair. 

The  subscriptions  received  for  the  relief  of  the  distresses  of  the 
poor  inliabitants  of  the  town  of  Boston,  were  laid  before  the  com- 
mittee, and  it  appeareth  that  tlie  sum  of  one  hundred  and  fifty- 
three  pounds,  fifteen  shillings  and  two  pence  has  been  collected  in 
the  borough  of  Lancaster  for  the  purposes  aforesaid,  that  it  being 
put  to  the  vote  whether  the  said  sum  sliould  not  be  immediately 
remitted  to  Piiiladelphia  to  Mr.  John  Nixon,  the  Treasurer  of  the 
city  and  county  of  Philadelphia,  to  be  laid  out  in  such  manner  as 
the  committee  for  tlie  said  city  and  county  should  think  proper  for 
the  relief  of  our  distressed  poor  brethren  of  the  town  of  Boston,  the 
same  was  carried  in  the  affirmative,  and  Edward  Shippen,  Esq.,  the 
chairman,  is  requested  to  forward  the  said  sum  of  money  forthwith 
to  Philadelphia  for  the  purpose  aforesaid. 

At  tliis  time  no  proper  account  could  possibly  be  had  of  the  sub- 
scription papers  of  the  several  townships  in  this  county. 

Tlie  following  letter  was  omitted  entering  in  its  proper  place,  and 
is  as  follows,  to  wit : 

Philadelphia,  June  CD,  1774. 

"  Gentlemen  :  Enclosed  you  will  receive  a  printed  circular  let- 
ter signed  by  the  chairman  of  our  committee,  and  the  resolves  there- 
in referred  to,  with  some  otiier  printed  papers.  The  use  to  be  made 
of  them,  your  own  prudence  and  good  judgment  will  suggest;  we 
would  be  glad  to  hear  as  soon  as  possible  from  the  committee  for 
your  county,  and  are 

Your  most  humble  servant, 

William  Sshth. 
Your  assured  friend, 

Isaac  Howell." 

To  Edward  Shippen  and  George  Iloss,  Esq'rs.,  who  are  requested 
to  communicate  the  enclosed  papers  to  the  other  gentlemen  of  the 
committee. 

Those  gentlemen  named  and  appointed  at  the  meeting  of  the  9tli 
of  July  last,  attended  the  provincial  convention  at  Philadelphia,  on 
Monday,  the  15th  then  next.  And  tlie  proceedings,  together  with 
the  resolves  of  that  provincial  committee,  hath  been  inserted  in  the 
public  papers. 

Lancaster,  August  11,  1774. 
At  a  meeting  of  the  committee  August  11th,  they  were  informed 
that  Joshua  and  Robert  Lockharts,  of  this  borough,  shopkeepers, 
had  brought  to  this  town  a  quantity  of  tea,  that  have  paid  duty 


282  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

under  the  late  act  of  Parliament.  A  note  was  therefore  sent  to 
them  by  the  committee  requiring  tlieir  immediate  attendance.  In 
consequence  tliereof,  one  of  tlie  partners  called  on  the  committee, 
but  denied  their  liaving  received  any  tea,  but  as  this  account  by  no 
means  appeared  satisfactory  from  several  matters  which  escaped 
the  partner  attending,  the  committee  did  inspect  their  sliop,  and 
with  some  dilhculty  learned  of  a  cliest  of  Bohea  tea,  weiglit  349, 
neat  weight,  which  they  had  bought  from  a  certain  merchant  in  Phi- 
ladelpliia.  Tl)e  committee,  taking  an  account  of  all  the  marks  of 
the  case  in  whicli  it  was  packed,  removed  tlie  tea,  and  wrote  to  the 
committee  of  Philadelphia,  who  examined  the  matter,  and  it  ap- 
peareth  that  this  tea  never  had  paid  any  duty,  but  was  part  of  a 
seizure  made  by  tlie  Custom  House  and  was  afterwards  purchased 
at  a  public  sale  by  the  original  owner  of  it,  as  by  a  letter  from  the 
committee  of  Pliiladelphia,  dated  August  25lh,  wrote  and  signed 
by  the  Honorable  Thomas  Willing,  the  chairman,  directed  to  this 
committee,  appears ;  upon  which,  the  said  teas  were  returned  again, 
and  the  said  Lockharts  were  acquitted. 

The  Continental  Congress  iield  at  Philadelphia,  the  fifth  of  Sep- 
tember, 1774,  continued  to  the  25th  of  October;  the  votes  and  pro- 
ceading  of  which  have  since  been  published  in  the  public  papers,

grievances,  occasional  resolves,  the  association,  an  address  to  the

pen,  Esq.,  in  the  chair. 

Several  of  the  reputable  inhabitants  of  this  borough  of  Lancaster, 

having  mentioned  their  dislike    to  Mr.  Francis  ,  having 

opened  a  dancing  school  in  this  borough,  (at  the  present  time)  and 
that  in  tlieir  opinion  the  same  was  contrary  to  the  eighth  article  of 
the  Association  of  the  Continental  Congress,  and  requesting  a  meet- 
ing of  this  committee  and  their  sentiments  on  the  occasion.  Upon 
consideration  of  the  matter,  it  is  the  opinion  of  this  committee  that 

the  said  'Mv.  Francis ,  opening  and  keeping  a  dancing  school 

ill  the  said  borough,  comes  within  tlie  meaning  of  the  eighth  article 
of  the  Association  of  the  Continental  Congress,  and  that  the  same 
ought,  at  the  present  time,  during  the  uniiappy  dispute  with  the 
mother  country,  to  be  discontinued.  And  Mr.  Francis ,  be- 
ing sent  for,  waited  upon  tlie  committee,  and  being  informed  of 
the  sentiments  of  this  committee,  agreed  and  promised  to  break  up 
and  discontinue  his  said  school.

A  letter  received  from  the  Committee  of  Correspondence  of  the 
city  of  Pliiladelphia,  dated  the  22  December.  1774,  directed  to  the 
committee  of  this  place,  of  which  the  following  is  a  copy,  viz  ; 

Gentlemen  :  By  order  of  the  committee  of  the  City  and  Liber- 
ties of  Philadelphia,  we  have  the  pleasure  to  transmit  you  the  fol- 
lowing resolves,  passed  this  day  with  great  unanimity,  viz : 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  REYOLUTIOX.  287 

"  That  this  committee  think  it  absolutely  necessary  that  the  com- 
mittees of  the  counties  of  tiiis  Province,  or  such  deputies  as  they 
may  appoint  for  this  purpose,  be  requested  to  meet  together  in  pro- 
vincial convention  as  soon  as  convenient. 

"That  it  be  recommended  to  tlie  county  committees  to  meet  in 
said  convention,  on  Monday,  the  23d  day  of  January  next,  in  the 
city  of  Pliiladelphia. 

*'  From  a  view  of  tiie  present  situation  of  public  affairs,  the  com- 
mittee liave  been  induced  to  propose  tliis  convention  tliat  tlie  sense 
of  the  Province  may  be  obtained ;  and  tliat  tlie  measures  to  be 
taken  thereupon,  may  be  the  result  of  tlie  united  wisdom  of  the 
Colony. 

"  Tiie  obvious  necessity  of  giving  an  immediate  consideration  to 
many  matters  of  tlie  greatest  importance  to  the  general  welfare, 
will,  we  hope,  sufficiently  apologize  to  you  for  naming  so  early  a 
day  as  the  23d  of  January.

adelphia, (meaning  the  same  above,)  was  laid  before  them  propos- 
ing a  provincial  convention,  to  be  held  at  Philadelphia,  the  22d  in-

Another  letter  from  the  same  Committee  of  Correspondence  of 
the  county  of  Berks,  to  the  committee  of  this  phice,  viz  : 

"  Reading,  5th  January,  1775. 
"  Gentlemen  :  Enclosed  is  an  extract  from  "the  proceedings  of 
the  committee  of  this  county,  by  which  you  will  see  that  deputies 
are  appointed  to  attend  the  proposed  provincial  convention. 

"  When  we  consider  that  our  disputes  are  drawing  fast  to  a  crigjs, 
and  that  the  most  cordial  unanimity  is  absolutely  necessary  for  our 
preservation,  we  cannot  doubt  but  that  your  respectable  committee 
will  without  hesitation  appoint  deputies  to  attend  the  provincial 
Congress.  Tlie  neglect  of  any  one  county  may  have  the  most  fatal 
consequences.  And  we  well  know  the  pleasure  it  would  give  our 
enemies  to  see  even  the  appearance  of  a  disunion  at  this  very  im- 
portant time. 

"  The  great  consequence  of  this  subject  will,  we  hope,  apologize 
for  this  freedom.

Mr.  Hamilton  having  attended,  and  it  appearing  by  the  oath  of 
John  Taylor,  the  clerk,  that  the  tea  was  sold  in  Mr.  Hamilton's  ab- 
sence at  Philadelphia,  contrary  to  the  express  orders  given  by  him 
in  his  store  since  tlie  first  of  March  instant;  and  Mr.  Hamilton, 
upon  knowing  of  the  said  tea  being  sold,  immediately  disapproved

claring tiiat  ever  since  the  first  of  Marcli,  instant,  liis  orders  in  the 
store  liave  been  to  his  clerk  that  they  should  sell  no  tea  whatsoever, 
and  that  the  said  sale  was  in  his  absence,  and  that  he  disapproves 
thereof.  Upon  consideration  of  the  premises  by  the  committee,  it 
is  their  unanimous  opinion  that  Mr.  Hamilton  stands  acquitted  of 
the  charge  against  him,  and  that  lie  hath  not  counteracted  the  As- 
sociation of  the  Continental  Congress. 

"  I,  Charles  Hamilton,  of  the  borough  of  Lancaster,  shopkeeper,

Upon  motion, 

Eesolved,  That  it  is  the  unanimous  opinion  of  this  committee, 
that  it  be  most  heartily  recommended  to  the  inhabitants  of  the 
county  of  Lancaster,  immediately  to  associate  and  provide  them- 
selves  with  arms  and  ammunition,  and  learn  tlie  art  of  military  dis- 
cipline, to  enable  them  to  support  and  defend  their  just  rights  and 
privileges  against  all  arbitrary  and  despotic  invasions  by  any  person 
or  persons  whatsoever. 

The  following  Association  was  then  proposed,  and  being  read 
paragraph  by  paragraph,  was  unanimously  agreed  to  by  the  commit- 
tee, and  follows  in  these  words,  to  wit : 

The  Association  of  the  Freemen  and  Inhabitants  of  ( township) 

the  county  of  Lancaster. 

Whereas,  The  enemies  of  Great  Britain  and  America.,  have  re- 
solved by  force  of  arms,  to  carry  into  execution  the  most  unjust, 
tyrannical,  and  cruel  edicts  of  the  British  Parliament,  and  reduce 
the  free  born  sons  of  America  to  a  state  of  vassalage,  and  have  flat^ 
tered  themselves  from  our  unacquaintance  with  military  discipline- 
that  we  should  become  an  easy  prey  to  them,  or  tamely  submit,  and 
bend  our  necks  to  the  yoke  prepared  for  us. 

We  do  most  solemnly  agree  and  associate,  under  the  deepest  sense 
of  our  duty  to  God,  our  country,  ourselves,  and  posterity,  to  defend 
and  protect  the  religious  and  civil  rights  of  this  and  our  sister 
Colonies,  with  our  lives  and  our  fortunes,  to  the  utmost  of  our 
abilities,  against  any  power  whatsoever,  that  shall  attempt  to  de- 
prive us  of  them. 

And  the  better  to  enable  us  so  to  do,  we  will  use  our  utmost  dili- 
gence to  acquaint  ourselves  with  military  discipline  and  the  art  of 
war. 

We  do  further  agree  to  divide  ourselves  into  companies,  not  ex- 
ceeding one  hundred  men  each,  so  as  to  make  it  most  convenient 
to  our  situations  and  settlements,  and  to  elect  and  chuse  such  per- 
sons as  the  majority  of  each  company  shall  think  proper  for  officers, 
viz:  for  each  company,  a  captain,  two  lieutenants,  and  one  en- 
sign, who  shall  liave  the  power  of  appointing  the  other  officers  un. 
der  them  necessary  for  the  companies. 

That  when  the  companies  are  formed,  and  the  officers  chosen  and 
appointed,  an  association  shall  be  signed  by  the  officers  and  soldiers 
of  each  company  for  the  good  order  and  government  of  the  officers 
and  soldiers.

Thursday,  November  9th,  1775. 

The  committee  met  according  to  adjournment. 

Present :  The  same  members  who  attended  yesterday,  and  more- 
over George  Ross,  Jacob  Krug,  George  Moore,  and  Adam  Reigart 
for  the  borough  of  Lancaster ;  Henry  Eckert  and  Michael  Ley  for

the  committee  for  the  said  township,  the  said  return  is  approved 
of,  and  they  took  their  seats  accordingly. 

A  letter  from  the  Committee  of  Safety  to  the  late  committee  of 
this  county,  dated  October  7th,  1775,  respecting  some  provincial 
muskets  supposed  to  be  in  the  hands  of  the  military  associators  and 
others  in  this  county,  being  produced  and  read  : 

liesolved,  That  William  Atlee,  Alexander  Lowry,  and  Sebastian 
Graff  be  a  committee  for  preparing  the  draft  of  an  answer  to  the 
said  letter,  and  that  they  report  the  same  to  this  committee  in  tiie 
afternoon. 

Jiesolced,  Unanimously,  that  this  committee  will  use  their  en- 
deavors to  carry  into  immediate  execution  tlie  resolves  of  the  hon- 
orable House  of  Assembly  respecting  the  six  liundred  stand  of  arms 
and  other  military  accoutrements  to  be  furnished  by  the  county 
of  Lancaster. 

The  question  being  put  wiiether  the  gun-smiths  residing  in  the 
borough  of  Lancaster  should  not  be  immediately  sent  for  to  give 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  REVOLUTION.  297 

their  reasons  to  this  committee,  why  they  have  not  set  about  malc- 
ing  the  arms  directed  by  the  iionorable  House  of  Assembly  to  be 
made  in  the  county  of  Lancaster,  agreeable  to  the  application  of 
the  commissioners  and  assessors  of  the  said  county,  the  same  was 
unanimously  carried  in  the  allirmative,  and  the  gun-smiths  were 
sent  for  accordingly. 

A  petition  signed  by  Henry  Zericher  being  presented  to  the  com- 
mittee, upon  inquiry  into  the  facts  therein  contained,  it  is  ordered 
by  this  committee,  (three  townships  dissenting,)  that  the  said  Henry 
Zericher  be  allowed  five  pounds  of  powder,  and  no  more,  out  of  the 
public  magazine,  for  the  purposes  expressed  in  the  petition,  he  pay- 
ing for  the  same  into  the  county  treasury  at  the  rate  of  four  shill- 
ings per  pound. 

The  sub-committee  appointed  to  essay  the  draft  of  an  answer  to 
the  letter  of  the  Committee  of  Safety  respecting  the  provincial 
muskets,  do  now  report  to  this  committee,  the  draft  of  the  answer 
which  they  had  prepared,  in  these  words,  to  wit : 

Lancaster,  November  0th,l775. 

Gentlemen  :  Your  letter  of  the  7th  day  of  October  last,  directed 
to  the  committee  of  Lancaster  county  respecting  the  provincial 
muskets  in  the  hands  of  the  military  associators  and  others  in  this 
county,  has  been  laid  before  this  committee  and  taken  into  con- 
sideration. 

We  find  that  the  gentlemen  who  were  the  Committee  of  Corres- 
pondence, appointed  by  the  late  county  committee,  had  upon  the 
receipt  of  your  letter,  published  and  dispersed  hand-bills  through- 
out the  county  requiring  the  persons  possessed  of  such  muskets  to 
bring  them  in  at  this  time.  As  none  are  brought  in,  we  beg  leave 
to  suggest  to  you  some  facts,  relative  to  those  arms,  and  wait  your 
further  directions. 

After  the  trooi)s  raised  by  the  Province  in  the  late  war  were  dis- 
banded, a  number  of  muskets  and  military  accoutrements  were 
lodged  at  a  Mr.  Carson's  in  Paxtang,  where  they  remained  without 
any  notice  or  care  being  taken  of  them,  until  the  unhappy  disputes 
between  Great  Britain  and  the  Colonies  rendered  it  indispensably 
necessary  for  our  safety  to  associate  and  arm  in  defence  of  our 
rights.  The  then  committee  of  this  county,  upon  hearing  of  those 
arms,  requested  some  of  their  members  to  examine  and  send  them 
down,  intending  an  application  to  the  Assembly  to  have  them  re- 
paired at  tlie  public  expense,  and  put  into  the  hands  of  such  asso- 
ciators as  were  unable  to  furnish  tliemselves,  and  who  were  to  give 
receipts  for  them  to  be  returned,  if  not  lost  in  actual  service.  At 
this  time  arms  were  sought  for  with  great  assiduity  by  every  one  who 
wished  to  be  instructed  in  the  military  discipline.  The  inhabitants 
of  Cumberland  county,  knowing  also  of  tlie  provincial  muskets, 


298  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

were  beforehand  witli  us,  and  having  the  first  choice,  took  between 
sixty  and  seventy  of  the  best  of  them  (for  which  Mr.  Carson  has  a 
receipt)  leaving  a  parcel  of  rubbish  which  were  sent  to  this  town, 
consisting  of  barrels  mostly  without  locks  and  stocks,  and  all  of 
them  so  covered  with  rust  that  they  were  thought  almost  unfit  for 
use,  and  scarcely  worth  repairing.  Many  of  them  were  loaded  and 
had  probably  been  so  for  many  years.  Some  of  the  poor  associators 
here  took  the  barrels,  and  with  much  labor  had  tliera  cleaned.  By 
the  help  of  some  old  locks  which  about  this  time  were  found  in  a 
garret  in  this  town  (without  an  owner)  and  were  distributed 
amongst  them,  they  had  them  put  into  such  repair  as  to  serve  them 
to  exercise  with.  These  persons  have  been  at  a  considerable  ex- 
pense in  putting  them  in  the  order  they  now  are ;  and  if  tliey  are 
deprived  of  them,  are  not  able  to  purchase  others.  There  are  a  few 
indeed  of  the  best  of  the  firelocks  which  we  think  could  safely  be 
trusted  to  for  real  service.  To  take  the  arms  from  tlie  poor  people 
under  such  circumstances  would  greatly  damp  tlieir  martial  spirit. 

AVe  conceive  it  our  duty  to  mention  these  things  to  the  Commit- 
tee of  Safety.  If  tliat  honorable  Board,  nevertheless,  shall  be  of 
opinion  that  such  firelocks  will  be  of  use  and  will  direct  in  what 
manner  the  people  who  have  been  at  expense  in  repairing  them  are 
to  be  reimbursed,  we  shall  cheerfully  exert  ourselves  to  the  utmost 
of  our  power  in  calling  them  in,  and  forwarding  them  to  Philadel- 
phia. 

Tills,  gentlemen,  is  the  first  opportunity  we  have  had  of  answer- 
ing your  letter  relative  to  tiie  arms.  Give  us  leave  to  assure  you, 
it  will  afford  us  great  pleasure  to  be  instrumental  in  any  degree  to 
the  safety  of  tlie  city  of  Philadelphia.  We  feel  very  sensibly  the 
situation  of  your  citizens ;  we  deem  ourselves  most  strongly  bound 
to  give  every  assistance  in  our  power  to  repel  any  attack  which 
may  be  attempted  against  you,  and  humbly  trust  we  shall  not  be 
deficient  in  the  day  of  danger. 

Your  letter  of  the  19tli  October,  came  to  our  hands.  According 
to  your  desire  a  proper  guard  from  hence  conducted  Dr.  Kearsley 
to  York,  and  took  a  receii)t  for  liis  safe  delivery  to  tlie  committee 
there.  J.  Brooks  remains  confined  in  our  gaol.  A  sub-committee 
of  twelve  gentlemen  residing  in  and  near  this  town,  has  been  ap- 
pointed to  see  that  your  sentence  and  resolves  respecting  Brooks  be 
carried  into  execution,  and  no  person  is  jiermitted  to  visit  him  but 
in  the  i)resence  of  one  or  more  of  those  gentlemen. 

By  order  of  the  committee  of  Lancaster  county. 

The  foregoing  answer  read  at  the  table,  was  unanimously  ap- 
proved of,  and  it  is  ordered  that  the  same  be  transmitted  to  the 
Committee  of  Safety  by  the  first  conveyance. 

Adjourned  until  to-morrow,  eight  o'clock.

bayonets  required  of  this  county,  by  the  honorable  House  of  As- 
sembly, within  two  weeks  from  such  application  agreeable  to  the 
patterns,  aft  the  Pliiladelphia  prices,  such  gun-smiths  shall  have 
their  names  inserted  in  the  minutes  of  this  committee  as  enemies 
to  their  country,  and  published  as  such,  and  the  tools  of  the  said 
gun-smiths  so  refusing  shall  be  taken  from  them,  and  moreover  the 
said  gun-smiths  shall  not  be  permitted  to  carry  on  their  trades  un- 
til they  shall  engage  to  go  to  work  as  aforesaid,  nor  shall  leave  their 
respective  places  of  residence  until  the  arms  are  completed. 

And  it  is  further  resolved,  That  the  Committee  of  Correspondence 
and  Observation  do  take  especial  care  that  their  resolves  be  car-

Assembly,)  at  the  Philadelphia  prices;  and  that  they  will  confine 
themselves  to  that  work  entirely  from  that  time  to  the  first  day  of 
March  next,  and  furnish  as  many  as  they  can  i)0ssibly  complete  in 
the  time,  and  deliver  the  same  to  the  commissioners  of  tlie  county 
or  this  committee. 

Michael  "Withers  appeared  in  committee,  and  agreed  to  set  to 
work  as  soon  as  he  hatli  comj)leted  a  few  guns  wliich  lie  hath  now

and  his  workmen  to  that  work  and  carry  on  the  same  as  expedi- 
tiously as  he  can,  and  that  he  will  deliver  in  to  the  commissioners 
and  assessors  of  this  county  or  to  this  committee  as  many  muskets. 

[Here  the  minutes  of  tlie  Committee  of  Correspondence  abruptly

[Capt.  John  Reed,  the  commander  of  the  following  company  dur- 
ing the  Jersey  campaign  of  1776-77,  was  the  son  of  James  Reed, 
who  located  near  the  mouth  of  Powell's  creek,  Lancaster,  now  Dau- 
phin county,  probably  as  early  as  1728.  On  maps  prior  to  1800,  the 
location  is  marked  "Reed's."  John  Reed  had  been  a  ranger  on 
the  frontiers  during  the  French  and  Indian  wars,  and  when  the 
war  of  the  Revolution  came  he  was  ready  for  the  conflict.  He  or- 
ganized the  company  of  associators  which  is  herewith  given,  and 
was  in  service  until  after  the  battles  in  and  around  Piiiladelphia. 
Capt.  Reed  died  in  1789.]

PlIILADELPIITA.  April  J.'"",  1777. 

Sir  :  Agreeable  to  the  enclosed  resolve  of  Congress,  and  with  the 
Advice  of  the  Board  of  War,  I  have  determined  that  the  Counties 
of  Phihidelphia,  Bucks,  Cumberland,  Berlss,  and  Xt)rthami)ton, 
send  their  Proportion  of  Militia  to  Bristol,  to  form  a  Cam[)  at  or 
near  tiiat  Borougii  Tlie  Counties  of  Chester,  Lancaster,  and 
Yorlc,  to  form  a  (Jamp  at  or  near  Chester. 

Your  County  is  tofurnisli  six  hundred  Men,  to  marcli  immediately 
to  Chester  with  as  many  arms  and  accoutrements  as  can  be  iiad  in 
the  County.  If  tlie  first  Class  does  not  amount  to  that  number,  tlie 
second  Class  also  are  to  marcli. 

You  are  to  procure  by  purcliase  or  otlierwise  a  Blanket  for  each 
Man  (wiiicli  is  to  remain  tlie  property  of  tlie  State,)  money  will  be 
sent  you  for  this  purpose.  If  tiiey  cannot  be  i)rocured  liy  purchase 
they  must  lie  impressed  l)y  their  value  paid,  this  is  to  be  done  in  a 
way  that  will  give  tiie  least  offence. 

You  are  to  exert  yourself  to  the  utmost  to  Comply  with  this 
Order  with  all  i)ossible  expedition,  as  the  Enemy  are  preparing  to 
make  an  immediate  attack  on  this  State. 

I  have  the  honor  to  be,  with  great  respect,  Your  most  Obedient, 
humble  Servant,

Paxtang,  ir"  IIu'i,  1777. 
Dear  Sii: :  Yours  I  rec''  last  Night  but  cannot  possibly  comply 
with  your  Request,  as  we  have  too  much  Divisions  in  this  Depart- 
ment, the  five  Sub-divisions  laid  off  in  Paxton  met  tolerably  well 
except  the  Germans,  wiio  seem  chiefly  all  to  stand  aloof,  tliree  of 
the  Companies  chose  their  officers  very  well,  and  the  other  two  ne- 
glected. There  was  no  disputes  about  pay,  but  one  of  them  seemed 
all  desirous  of  being  officers,  and  the  other  all  Privates;  declining 
any  commissions  tliat  were  offered.  I  have  promised  my  attend- 
ance in  one  of  tliese  Companies  to-Morrow  ;  as  to  the  Dispute  about 
pay,  I  tliink  if  they  would  have  the  least  Consideration,  miglit  be 
soon  removed,  it  miglit  answer  well  enough  to  draw  out  a  few  men 
when  there  was  no  compulsion  nor  Law  to  put  every  Man  on  an 
equnl  Ballance  in  expense  of  the  War,  but  as  the  Law  is  regulated 
at  present,  except  the  whole  State  in  general,  or  at  least  the  whole 
Battalion  woidd  condescend  to  that  Plan,  it  would  be  in  vain  for 
one  Company  to  i)retend  to  it,  except  they  would  think  lliemselves 
wiser  law-makers  thnn  the  Choice  of  the  State,  because  each  Com- 
pany or  Draught  is  made  out  of  the  whole  Battalion,  and  if  they 
should  deviate  from  the  Laws  of  the  State,  they  would  be  a  Deri- 
sion to  all  the  rest.  You  can  Inform  them  that  if  they  don't  choose 
for  themselves,  the  Lieutenants  will  be  under  the  Necessity  of 
choosing  for  them.  And  you  will  be  good  enough  to  consider  and 
inform  yourself  what  Men  will  be  most  likely  to  suit,  if  that  should 
be  the  Case,  that  you  can  recommend  them  to  us.  I  had  a  letter 
from  Col.  (Jalbraith  last  Night  Desiring  I  would  give  you  Word  to 
bring  the  Rei)ort  of  youi  Battalion,  Companies,  Riink,  nnd  Draughts 
to  liiin  at  Lancaster  next  Wednesday,  and  draw  for  Rank  with  the 
other  Colonels. 

In  haste  I  am  your  Il'ble  .'Servant,

rec''  this  Morning,  Countermands  the  March  of  tiie  first  Class  of 
the  Militi;!,  on  tlie  retreat  of  General  How's  troops  from  Summer- 
set &  Brunswick  to  Amboy  &  Stateu  Island,  yet  at  tlie  Same  time 
to  hold  in  readiness  at  a  moment's  warning,  as  no  doubt  tliey  may 
be  soon  called.  Sliould  How  attempt  our  Caiies.  I  have  wrote  to 
the  President  &  expect  in  a  few  days  his  answer,  wlien  you'll  re- 
ceive Particular  orders  from  me.  Continue  Such  Substitutes  as  are 
already  provided  for  the  i)rotection  of  the  civil  Authority,  but  re- 
commend to  the  Majistrates  to  proceed  only  to  collecting  of  the 
fines  for  days  of  exercise,  for  a  few  days,  until  the  President's  An- 
swer comes  to  hand.  I  have  sent  a  few  Notices  amongst  you  which 
I  expect  you'll  Observe.  When  I  was  in  your  Country  our  people 
had  a  brusli  witli  a  number  of  riotors  in  which  one  of  our  jieople 
was  killed  by  the  Stroak  of  tlie  Coalter  of  a  Plough  k  three  of  the

Surjirises  me  no  little,  to  find  that  uneasiness  sliould  be  now  arris- 
ing  amongst  you,  at  the  very  time  it  ought  not  to  subsist. 

By  Capt.  Hay  1  have  sent  you  the  rules  by  which  the  Continental 


478  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

Armey  is  governed,  to  wliicli  every  Oflicer  &  Soldier  now  with  you 
is  subject  (or  ougiit  to  be)  wliicli  you'l  cause  to  be  read  at  the  Head 
of  the  Company  for  their  Instruction  as  to  that  of  their  duty,  tiiat 
should  they  offend,  or  goe  out  of  the  line  of  duty  it  may  not  be  un- 
known to  tliem,  as  fm  determined  if  in  my  power  to  preserve  good 
order.  You  will  call  or  api)oint  the  men  to  meet  twice  a  week  at 
your  house  or  elsewhere  as  you  shall  see  meet,  to  receive  tiieir  far- 
ther Instructions  which  shall  be  handed  you  from  nie,  as  the  exi- 
giency  of  affairs  may  require,  but  at  the  same  time  they  (the  Sol- 
diers) are  to  take  care  that  no  expense  is  accrued  to  the  State  for 
their  mentainance  during  such  Intervals,  their  hands  must  clear 
their  teetii.  As  the  President  has  put  it  in  my  power  to  continue 
the  guard  at  my  i)leasure,  I  do  think  proper  to  continue  the  Substi- 
tutes until  tiie  civil  authority  has  no  further  demand  for  us;  it's  not 
the  business  of  this,  that,  or  the  other  Class,  how  tiie  present  Class, 
serves  their  tower  of  duty  or  yet  the  peoi)le  for  whom  they  are  Im- 
ployed  ;  as  tiie  house  of  Assembly  has  appointed  me  the  drudge  in 
that  respect,  for  those  very  mute  good  People,  &  have  boren  the 
burthen  for  them,  I'm  also  determined  that  they  shall  give  me  a 
Liberty  to  Judge  for  them,  so  that  if  they  make  use  of  Language 
let  it  be  amongst  tiiemselves,  as  I  hope  ever  to  be  able  to  act  agree- 
able to  my  duty  witliout  Partiality  to  Persons  while  in  my  present 
station.  I  hope  tiie  Substitutes  will  behave  themselves  becoming 
men  of  candour  and  probity.  I'm  tlieir  mark  for  their  wages.

hitherto  been  afforded  iiim  ;  expressing  ids  great  surprise  to  see 
the  good  people  of  tills  Commonwealth  so  backward  to  take  the  field 
in  tiieir  own  defence.  In  concequence  of  whicii  tiie  Council  has 
called  on  me  for  the  Sixth  &  Seventh  Class  of  the  Militia  from  this 
County  to  ^lareh  Immediately  to  Camp,  equipped  each  man  with  a 
Blanket  &  what  Arms  can  jwsably  be  collected  let  them  belong  to 
whom  tliey  will.  Tliis  you'l  please  to  take  notice  of  &,  perform  with 
prudence  &  care  agreeable  to  former  orders  given  you  by  me.  Pro- 
vided tlie  above  class's  do  not  turn  out  as  they  ouglit,  I'm  also  Au- 
tiiorized  to  call  out  the  next  two  Succeeding  Class's  <fc  march  them 
to  Camp. 

I  could  wish  tliat  you  would  recomend  to  your  People  to  layaside 
every  little  tlio'  of  offending  tiieir  Neighbors  by  lieing  Active  in 
turning  tliem  out  in  tiieir  Class's;  if  they  do  not,  tiie  concequence 
is,  that  the  burthen  delinquents  ought  to  bear,  ilust  be  heaped  on

liis  Armey,  as  they  have  Burgoyue  &  iiis  under  General  Gates,  which 
if  "we  turn  out  is  in  our  power  positively,  unless  kind  Providence 
has  oLherwise  determined.  Council  also  requests  me  to  Invite  all 
who  will  turn  out  as  volunteers,  that  their  Services  will  be  thank- 
fully rec'  and  recompenced  :  and  that  the  Same  time  those  who  have 
heretofore  omitted  going  in  their  respective  Class's,  that  will  now 
turn  out,  their  Services  will  be  rec'  as  a  full  Compensation  for  their

them  lest  there  may  be  a  Scarcity,  &  let  every  Man  bring  a  Side  if 
possible  as  the  Salvation  of  the  Crops  in  Northumberland  would 
pay  the  Expence  of  the  whole  Expedition.  Let  the  Delinquents  of

Admit.  Every  thing  from  that  Quarter  bears  the  most  favorable 
Aspect,  the  French  Fleet  arrived  off  the  Delaware  Capes  last  Friday

Gentlemen:  We  are  informed  that  there  are  some  of  the  Pro- 
vincial Muskets  in  the  hands  of  tlie  Military  Associators  and  others 
of  your  County.  Tlie  present  gloomy  prospect  of  Americans  affairs 
and  the  daily  expectation  there  is  of  some  Ships  of  War  being  sent 
to  awe  &  intimidate  if  not  to  destroy  this  City  (as  we  are  informed) 
makes  it  consistent  witli  our  duty  to  take  every  method  in  our 
power  to  render  ineffectual  all  their  hostile  and  tyranical  purposes — 
nor  have  we  neglected  or  left  any  probable  means  nnessayd  to  put 
this  City  &  Province  in  a  compleat  posture  of  defence.  But  un- 
happily we  find  that  when  we  have  built  &  equipped  a  number  of 
Boats  of  AVar  and  nearly  manned  them  with  their  compliment  of 
men  we  are  destitute  of  small  arms  to  furnish  them  with,  nor  is  it 
in  our  power  to  procure  any  either  by  purchase  or  otherwise.  This 
lays  us  under  tiie  necessity  of  applying  to  you  with  a  request  that 
you  will  call  in  the  said  Provincial  arms  and  send  tliem  to  this 
Committee  Avith  all  tlie  Expedition  A:  dispatch  in  your  power. 
Your  performance  of  tliis  request  will  manifest  your  attaciiment 
to  the  generel  interests  of  tlie  Colony,  give  confidence  to  those  tiiat 
are  most  immediately  exposed  to  the  insults  of  the  enemy  and  en- 
courage a  vigourous  opposition.  Any  expences  that  shall  accrue  by 
the  performance  of  this  desire  will  be  defrayed  by  this  Committee. 

By  order  of  the  Committee  of  Safety.

THE  LANCASTER  COMMITTEE  TO  ROBERT  MORRIS. 


Lancaster,  ^i'ovemher  9, 1775. 

Gentlemen  :  Your  Letter  of  the  7"'  Day  of  October  last  directed 
to  the  Committee  of  Lancaster  County,  respecting  the  Provincial 
Muskets  in  tlie  Hands  of  the  military  Associators  &  others  in  this 
County,  lias  been  laid  before  this  Committee,  and  taken  into  con- 
sideration. 

We  hnd  that  the  Gentlemen  who  were  the  Committee  of  Corre- 
si)ondence,  appointed  by  the  late  County  Committee,  had  upon  the 
Receipt  of  your  Letter,  publisiieil  &  disi)ursed  Hand  Lills  tlirough- 
out  the  County  recpiiring  tlie  Persons  possessed  of  such  Muskets 
to  bring  them  in  at  this  Time.  As  none  are  brought  in,  AVe  beg 
leave  to  mention  to  you  some  Facts  relative  to  those  arms,  ct  wait 
your  further  Directions. 

After  the  Troops  raised  by  tliis  Province  in  the  late  War  were 
disbanded,  a  number  of  Muskets  &  military  Accoutrements  were 
lodged  at  a  Mr.  Carson's  in  Paxtang,  wiiere  they  remained  witliout 
any  Notice  or  care  being  taken  of  tliem,  until  the  unliappy  Dis- 
putes between  Great  Britain  &  the  Colonies  rendered  it  indispen- 
sibly  necessary  for  our  Safety  to  associate  &  arm  in  Defence  of  our 
Rights.  The  then  Committee  of  this  County  upon  hearing  of  those 
arms,  requested  some  of  their  members  to  examine  tiieni  &  send 
them  down,  intending  an  application  to  tlie  Assembly  to  have  them 
repaired  at  tlie  public  expense,  and  jnit  into  the  Hands  of  such  As- 
sociators as  were  unable  to  furnish  themselves,  and  wlio  were  to 
give  Receipts  for  them  to  be  returned,  if  not  lost  in  actual  Service. 
At  this  Time,  arms  were  sought  for  with  great  assiduity  liy  every 
one  wiio  wished  to  be  instructed  in  tlie  Military  Discipline  The 
Inhabitants  of  Cumberland  County  knowing  also  of  the  I'rovincial 
Muskets,  were  beforehand  with  us,  and  having  the  first  clioice  took 
between  sixty  and  seventy  of  the  best  of  them,  ifor  which  Mr.  Car- 
son has  a  Receipt)  leaving  a  Parcel  of  Rubbish  which  were  sent  to 
this  Town,  consisting  of  Barrels  mostly  without  Locks  &  Stocks, 
and  all  of  them  so  covered  with  Rust,  that  they  were  thought 
almost  unfit  for  use,  &  scarcely  worth  repairing.  Many  of  them 
were  loaded,  and  had  probably  been  so  for  many  years.  Some  of 
the  poorer  Associators  here  took  the  Barrels,  ifc  with  much  Labour 
had  them  cleansed.  By  the  Help  of  some  old  Locks,  which  about 
this  Time  were  found  in  a  Garret  in  this  Town  (without  an  owner) 
and  were  distributed  amongst  them,  they  had  them  i)ut  in  such 
Repair  as  to  serve  them  to  exercise  with.  Tiiese  Persons  liave  been 
at  a  considerable  expence  in  ])utting  the  arms  in  the  order  they  now 
are,  and  if  they  are  deprived  of  them  are  not  able  to  purchase  others. 


506  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

There  are  few  indeed  of  the  best  of  the  Firelocks,  which  we  think 
could  safely  be  trusted  to  for  real  Service. 

We  conceive  it  our  Duty  to  mention  these  things  to  the  Com- 
mittee of  Safety.  To  take  the  arms  from  the  poor  People,  under 
such  circumstances  would  greatly  damp  their  martial  spirit.  If 
that  II(*nourable  Board  nevertheless  shall  be  of  opinion  that  such 
Firelocks  will  be  of  use,  and  will  direct  in  what  manner  the  People 
who  have  been  at  tlie  expence  of  repairing  them,  are  to  be  reim- 
bursed, we  shall  cheerfully  exert  ourselves  to  the  utmost  of  our 
Power  in  calling  tliem  in  and  forwarding  them  to  Pliilad'. 

This,  Gentlemen,  is  the  first  opportunity  we  have  had  of  answer- 
ing your  Letter  relative  to  the  arms.  Give  us  leave  to  assure  you 
it  will  afford  us  great  Pleasure  to  be  instrumental  in  any  Degree  to 
the  Safety  of  the  City  of  Philadelphia.  AVe  feel  very  sensibly  the 
Situation  of  your  Citizens.  We  deem  ourselves  most  strongly  bound 
to  give  every  assistance  in  our  Power  to  repel  any  attack  which 
may  be  attempted  against  you,  and  humbly  trust  we  shall  not  be 
deficient  in  the  Day  of  Danger. 

Your  Letter  (tf  tlie  19"'  October  came  to  our  Hands.  According 
to  your  Desire  a  proper  Guard  from  hence  conducted  Dr.  Kearsley 
to  York,  and  took  a  Receipt  for  his  safe  Delivery  to  the  Committee 
there.  I.  Brooks  remains  confined  in  our  Goal.  A  Sub-Committee 
of  twelve  (ientlemen  residing  in  &  near  this  Town  has  been  ap- 
pointed to  see  tliat  your  Sentence  &  Resolves  respecting  lirooks  be 
carried  into  execution,  and  no  Person  whatever  is  permitted  to 
visit  him,  but  in  the  Presence  of  one  or  more  of  those  Gentlemen.

Gentlemen  :  We  have  considered  your  respectful  answer  to 
our  application  for  the  publick  arms  in  the  County  of  Lancaster

have  only  to  acknowledge  your  zeal  in  the  i)ublic  Cause  and  to 
desire  you  will  send  to  us  the  names  of  the  persons  in  whose  hands 
the  arms  are  left,  that  it  may  be  known  where  to  ai)]>ly  for  them  on

Lancaster,  December  the  9"",  1775. 

Gentlemen  :  After  the  repeated  intercessions  of  1.  Brooks,  the 
Prisoner  sent  to  tliis  Goal  bj'  the  Committee  of  Safety,  that  he 
might  be  permitted  to  write  to  some  Friend  in  England,  relative  to 
his  ])rivate  affairs  there,  and  that  lie  might  be  indulged  witli  inclos- 
ing that  I^etter  to  Coll".  Roberdeau.  The  Committee  here  iiave  ven- 
tured to  indulge  him,  and  forward  the  inclosed  Letters,  (wliich  have 
been  wrote  by  him  in  tlie  presence  of  some  Members  of  tliis  Commit- 
tee)open,  for  the  perusal  A:  Consideration  of  the  Committee  of  Safety, 
who  will  either  suppress  or  forward  them  as  they  shall  think  proper. 

This  Committee  have  gratified  him  tlius  far  (altho'  it  seems  con- 
trary to  the  directions  of  tiie  Committee  of  Safety)  in  hopes  that  he 
might  have  made  some  interesting  discoveries.  If  any  further 
favours  of  this  kind  are  not  to  be  granted  to  him,  the  Committee 
here  will  in  future  refuse  him,  and  if  in  this  instance  they  liave 
done  amiss  hope  to  be  excused.  Great  care  hatii  been  taken  that 
no  Pen,  Ink  or  Paper  hath  been  used  by  him  except  that  made  use 
of  in  writing  these  Letters,  and  in  every  otiier  respect  the  Commit- 
tee may  be  assured  that  tlieir  directions  as  to  him  have  been  punc- 
tually observed.

Dear  Sir  :  It  is  with  great  reluctance  1  now  take  the  Liberty  to 
beg  your  attention,  well  Knowing  that  every  moment  of  your  Time 
is  taken  up  in  the  Service  of  your  Country,  But  Justice  to  the 
bearer  Captain  Samuel  Atle  will  not  permit  me  to  be  Silent.  He 
waits  upon  the  Committee  of  Safety  of  tliis  Province  for  their  Re- 
commendation to  the  Honourable  the  Congress  to  the  Command  of 
one  of  the  Battalions  now  to  be  raised. 

I  liave  the  Pleasure  of  a  long  acquaintance  witli  him  and  am 
Realy  at  a  loss  for  AVords  to  express  my  regard  for  him.  lie  is  a 
gentleman  miiversally  Esteemed  by  liisac(iuaiiitaiices  &  Neighbors 
a  very  warm  Friend  to  the  American  Cause,  and  as  to  his  Knowl- 
edge in  tlie  ISIilitary  Arrangement,  I  am  Convinced  there  are  few  in 
the  Province  who  Excell  him.  Colonel  Miles  is  well  acquainted 
with  him  and  his  abilities  in  this  Department,  they  having  Served 
in  the  same  Regiment  in  the  Service  of  tliis  Province  for  several

"We  observe  by  the  Orders  to  the  Ofticers  recruiting  here  for  tlie 
Continental  Army  tluit  tliey  are  lit  liberty  to  take  all  able  bodied 
Men  between  IG  &  50,  bouglit  Servants  excepted.  Under  these 
orders  the  Gentlemen  recruiting  here  have  inlisted  several  Appren- 
tices in  this  Town,  and  amongst  them,  some  of  the  Gunsmiths' 
Apprentices.  The  necessity  of  keeping  our  Gunsmitlis  busily  em- 
ployed in  finishing  the  Arms  required  to  be  furnislied  by  this  County 
and  tlie  assurances  we  had  that  many  of  the  Gunsmiths'  Appren- 
tices intended  to  inlist  (which  upon  examination  we  found  to  be  so) 
induced  us  to  interfere.  AVe  have  prevailed  upon  Cap'.  Ilubley  to 
permit  the  Gunsmiths'  Apprentices  whom  he  had  inlisted  to  return 
&  work  with  tiieir  Masters  &  have  his  promise  with  that  of  the 
other  Gentlemen  recruiting  in  this  Town  not  to  take  any  more  of 
them  untill  we  can  receive  the  opinion  of  the  Congress  or  the  Com- 
mittee of  Safety  on  this  subject.  Tlie  Gunsmiths  assure  us  that  if 
their  apprentices  or  Servants  who  are  employed  in  that  Business 
are  taken  from  them,  they  cannot  go  on  with  their  work.  We  have 
them  all  now  busily  employed  and  many  of  their  apprentices  are  ex- 
ceeding good  Workmen.  We  tlierefore  beg  the  Sentiments  of  the 
Committee  of  Safety  as  to  this  matter  and  if  an  order  of  Congress 
is  thought  proper  and  necessary  to  prevent  the  inlistment  of  these 
Apprentices,  request  the  Committee  will  i)rocure  it  &  order  it  to  be 
forwarded  to  us,  that  we  may  quiet  the  Minds  of  the  Gunsmiths, 
who  are  very  uneasy,  and  would  be  glad  of  an  excuse  to  lay  by  the 
Musket-Work  &  make  Rifles,  which  are  more" profitable  for  them. 

in  procuring  these  Apprentices  to  be  sent  to  work  with  their 
Masters  and  in  preventing  the  enlistment  of  others  (until  the  Senti- 
ments of  the  Congress  or  Committee  of  Safety  sliall  be  known  to 
us)  we  h.ave  acted  with  a  view  to  the  real  Interests  of  our  Country 
&  hope  the  approbation  of  the  Committee  of  Safety  with  their  di- 
rections how  to  conduct  ourselves  in  this  Matter  in  future,  which 
we  shall  punctually  observe. 

The  Soldier  prisoners  here  make  frequent  applications  to  be  suf- 
fered to  inlist  with  our  recruiting  Parties.  We  have  constantly  dis- 
couraged it,  except  in  the  instance  of  tw^o  of  them  who  were  in- 
listed  by  Cap'.  AVatson,  wherein  the  inlistments  were  actually  signed 
before  we  knew  of  it.  These  Men  we  directed  to  go  with  Cap'.  Wat- 
son on  the  recruiting  Service,  &  at  the  same  time  promised  tiieir 
former  Cap'.  (Kinnear  of  the  7''  Ileg'.  who  behaved  with  a  good 
deal  of  warmth  upon  the  occasion)  that  we  would  take  the  opinion 
of  the  Congress  or  the  Committee  of  Safety  in  this  respect.  We 
beg  leave  to  submit  this  matter  to  the  Committee  &  request  tiieir 
Sentiments  as  to  the  propriety  of  such  inlistments,  according  to 
which  we  sliall  govern  ourselves.

Gentlemen:  "We  received  last  night  a  Letter  from  the  Com- 
mittee of  Safety  of  the  Province  of  Pennsylvania,  accompanied  with 
their  Resolutions  &  those  of  the  Congress  respecting  tlie  Officers 
who  are  Prisoners  here.  In  Consequence  of  the  Authority  delegated 
so  us,  to  make  the  best  arrangement  we  could,  as  to  tliis  Distribu-

of  tlie  Ilon'ble  Congress.  Capt'n  Campbell  has  also  leave  to  go  to 
Philad'a  to  visit  Mrs.  Campbell  who  is  indisposed.  Sliould  they  re- 
turn here  they  will  also  be  fixed  amongst  you.  The  Officer's  Ser- 
vants accompany  them.  The  other  Officers  arc  stationed  at  Car- 
lisle. All  the  Military  Gentlemen  start  from  this  Place  on  Friday 
next  under  tiie  escort  of  two  of  us. 

We  think  it  our  Duty  to  give  you  the  earliest  Inteligence  we 
possibly  can  of  this  measure,  that  you  may  take  the  projier  Steps 
with  Respect  to  their  Plans  of  Lodging,  &  sucii  necessary  precau-

In  Committee  for  Lancasteu  County, 
Lancastek,  March  20,  1776. 
Gentlemen  :  We  have  received  your  Letter  of  the  14"'  Instant, 
accompanied  with  the  Resolves  of  Congress  of  the  20"'  Fel^ruary, 
respecting  the  Distribution  of  the  Officers  late  Prisoners  in  this 
Borough.  In  Order  that  your  Resolution  might  lie  immediately 
effected,  we  desired  the  attendance  of  those  Gentlemen,  on  your 
Letters  Coming  to  Hand.  After  some  Conference,  we  i)itched  on 
the  Town  of  York  for  the  Residence  of  tlie  following  Oflicers,  viz' : 
Captain  ,Tolnr  Strong,  Capt.  John  Livingston,  Lieut.  D.  McDonnell, 
Lieut.  E.  P.  Willington.  Lieut.  Robert  Tliomas.  Lieut.  Edward

Lieut.  William  Carlyon  Hughes,  Lieut.  William  Duff,  Lieut.  John 
Andre,  Lieut.  Joseph  Campbell,  and  Lieut.  George  Peacocke.  We 
have  the  Pleasure  to  mention  to  your  Honourable  Board,  that 
wliatever  Pain  a  Separation  from  their  Men  miglit  cause  to  the 
Military  Gentlemen,  they  acquiesced  with  our  Arrangement  with 
great  Politeness.  We  i)ermitted  one  Servant  to  attend  each  Officer, 
and  engaged  at  tlie  Continental  Expense,  Teams  to  carry  their  Bag- 
gage, and  Stage  Waggons  to  transport  themselves,  to  their  respec- 
tive Places  of  Destination.  Two  of  our  Board  also  accompanied 
them  to  York  &  Carlisle.  The  Expenses  attending  this  Matter 
will  be  transmitted  to  you,  upon  our  being  furnished  with  the  sev- 
eral Amount?.  We  wrote  to  the  Committee  of  York  and  Carlisle 
agreeable  to  your  Desire,  previous  to  the  Officers  setting  out,  and 
sent  tliem  your  Letters.  Capt".  Campbell  afterwards  produced  a 
Letter  from  the  President  of  the  Congress,  permitting  iiim  to  go 
Philad-'.  so  that  his  llout  was  altered.  Capt".  Gordon  of  the  26'" 
Keg',  came  to  this  Town  since,  and  brought  with  him  an  Extract 
from  your  Minutes.  He  went  a  few  Days  ago  to  York.  Ui)on  the 
whole.  Gentlemen,  we  have  transacted  this  Business  according  to 
tlie  Best  Judgement  we  could  form,  from  our  Experience  of  the 
Conduct  of  the  Officers ;  and  we  Hatter  ourselves  our  Conduct  herein 
Avill  ]»rove  satisfactory. 

Upon  the  Receipt  of  your  Letter  of  the  19'"  Instant,  we  wrote  to 
tlie  several  Colonels  in  the  County,  inclosing  a  Copy  of  your  Letter 
and  requesting  a  Conference  with  them,  and  the  other  Field  Officers 
this  Day,  at  the  same  Time  desiring  them  to  inform  themselves 
previous  to  our  Meeting,  of  the  Number,  Kind,  State  and  Condi- 
tion of  the  Arms  in  their  respective  Battalions.  The  greater  Part 
of  those  Gentlemen  met  us  this  Day  in  Committee.  We  warmly 
recommended  to  them  to  use  tlieir  utmost  Diligence  to  procure  the 
Articles  of  Association  to  be  more  generally  signed,  and  that  they 
would  pay  a  proper  Attention  to  the  Arms  &  Accoutrements  of  the 
Associators,  that  every  Man  might  be  i)repared  &  in  Readiness  to 
march  at  an  Hour's  Warning.  We  are  filled  with  the  utmost  Con- 
cern, to  find,  that  there  is  so  small  a  Number  of  good  Arms  in  the 
Hands  of  tlie  Associators.  When  the  late  Resolve  of  Congresscon- 
cerning  the  Disarming  of  Non-Associators  is  carried  into  Execu- 
tion by  the  Honourable  House  of  Assembly,  or  your  reputable 
Board,  we  doubt  not  but  our  spirited  Associators  will  receive  some 
supi)ly  of  Fire-Arms.  The  fatal  Consequence  which  m:iy  arise  from 
the  Want  of  arms  amongst  us  are  too  obvious  to  be  insisted  on,  par- 
ticularly in  thisTown,  where  we  have  about  four  hundred  Prisoners, 
and  most  of  them  of  active,  restless  and  uneasy  Spirits. 

We  have  ordered  250  Weight  of  Powder  immediately  to  be  made 
up  into  Cartridges  &  fitted  with  proper  Ball,  so  as  to  suit  the  sev- 
eral Bores  of  the  Muskets  and  Guns  amongst  us,  and  to  be  lodged 


AXD  MILITIA  OF  THE  REYOLUTIOX.  -515 

in  our  Magazine.  As  tliis  Powder  and  Lead  lias  been  laid  in 
altogether  at  the  Expense  of  the  County,  we  beg  Leave  to  suggest 
to  you  that  should  the  same  be  removed  from  here,  we  must  run  to 
you  for  a  fresh  Supply,  in  Order  to  render  the  Minds  of  the  Inhabi- 
tants easy. 

We  have  also,  Gentlemen,  to  answer  your  Letter  of  the  23'  Inst, 
requiring  us  to  fill  up  a  Blank  left  for  the  Names  of  some  Persons 
appointed  to  pui'chase  of  all  such  who  do  not  associate  and  of  such 
Associators,  who  have  spare  ^Muskets,  as  many  good  Muskets  as 
they  can  procure  in  this  County.  We  have  taken  Pains  lo  inform 
ourselves  on  tliis  (Subject.  We  cannot  lind  that  tliere  any  Muskets 
in  the  Hands  of  Xon-Associators,  and  but  too  few  amongst  those 
who  do  associate.  Very  small  indeed  is  the  Number  of  spare  arms 
amongst  the  Associators,  and  those  have  been  kindly  dealt  out  to 
other  Persons  in  the  different  Companies,  who  are  unable  to  supply 
themselves  with  any  Kind  of  Firelocks  to  learn  the  military  Ex- 
ercise. We  regret  exceedingly,  that  the  unfortunate  Want  of  proper 
arms  greatly  damps  tlie  Spirit  of  our  military  Associators. 

We  ardently  wish  it  pray  to  obviate  tliis  powerful  objection.  We 
are  confident,  it  is  not  the  Meaning  of  your  Board  to  encourage  the 
poor  and  needy  Associators  to  part  witli  their  Arms,  and  thereby 
to  affect  and  sensibly  injure  the  military  Spirit  prevailing  amongst 
us :  Nor  do  we  apprehend  it  to  be  the  Intention  of  your  Letter, 
that  all  Kind  of  Guns  indiscriminately,  should  be  bought  up  of  the 
Non-Associators.  That  particular  Business,  we  conceive,  will  be 
carried  through  as  early  as  possible,  either  by  the  House  of  As- 
sembly or  your  Body,  under  the  late  Resolve  of  the  Honourable 
Congress,  in  such  Manner  as  will  appear  most  eligible  to  secure 
those  Arms,  and  at  the  same  Time  to  preserve  the  Common  Union 
and  public  Tranquility. 

We  are,  Gentlemen,  respectfully

Gents:  Tlie  Committee  are  desirous  of  Having  made  in  your

We  are  desirous  to  co-openite  with  you,  and  doubt  not  the  gun-

TO  CONGRESS  FROM  TIIE  COMMITTEE  OF  LANCASTER

In  Committee,  Lancaster,  April  nth,  I77G. 

Gentlemen:  The  oflicers  of  the  7th  and  SGtIi  regiments,  with 
those  of  the  Royal  Emigrants  and  Captain  CImse  of  the  Navy, 
having  been  lately  removed  from  hence  by  order  of  the  Committee 
of  Safety,  under  the  direction  of  the  Honorable  the  Congress,  to 
tlie  towns  of  York  and  Carlisle,  in  this  Province,  without  having 
it  in  their  power  (as  we  have  reason  to  believe  with  respect  to  some 
of  them)  to  discharge  tiie  moneys  due  at  their  lodgings  and  diet, 
at  the  house.s  where  they  were  lodged  and  messed  in  tliis  town  ;  and 
the  persons  wlio  have  demands  against  tlio.se  gentlemen  for  the.se 
articles,  having  laid  their  accounts  before  this  Committee,  and  re- 
quested the  assistance  of  tlie  Committee  in  procuring  them  their 
moneys,  we  are  obliged  to  trouble  the  IIonoral)le  the  Congress  with 
a  state  of  the  demands  and  accounts  of  these  i)ersoiis,  and  request 
their  direction  in  tlie  matter,  that  these  creditors  of  the  otlicers 
(some  of  whom,  especially  those  whose  claims  are  the  greatest,  are 
not  in  the  most  easy  circumstances)  may  have  their  demands  ad- 
justed and  paid. 

Tiie  Committee,  gentlemen,  are  interested  in  this  matter.  The 
olhcers,  when  brought  to  this  town  by  Cajit.  Mott,  were  jilaced  by 
him  in  the  houses  of  Messrs.  Mathias  Slough  and  Adam  Reigart, 
wliose  accounts,  we  understand,  have  been  transmitted  to  Congress, 
and  are  therefore  not  taken  notice  of  here.  After  those  gentlemen 
had  entertained  and  i)rovided  for  the  oflicers  a  considerable  time, 
they  found  it  very  inconvenient  and  requested  their  removal.  The 
otlicers  took  great  pains  to  provide  themselves  with  lodgings  and 
accommodations,  but  without  success.  The  gentlemen  with  whom 
they  Avere  first  placed,  at  length  refused  absolutely  to  jirovide  for 
them  any  Ijnger,  and  a])])lied  to  the  Committee  to  relieve  them. 
The  otlicers  in  this  situation  likewise  addressed  the  Committee, 


AXD  MILITIA  OF  THE  KEYOLUTIOX.  517 

representing  the  dillic allies  they  were  subjected  to,  every  moment 
in  expectation  of  being  turned  out  of  doors  and  having  notice  that 
no  more  provisions  would  be  dressed  for  them.  To  gentlemen  in 
that  delicate  situation,  thougli  enemies,  we  could  not  avoid  render- 
ing every  service  in  our  power.  We  made  interest  witli  some  of 
the  inliabitants  to  afford  them  private  lodging  witli  lirf  wood  and 
candles.  At  these  i)rivate  houses  tliey  lodged  and  breakfasted,  at- 
tended by  their  own  s(;rvants,  and  as  it  was  inconvenient  for  private 
families  to  dress  dinners  and  suppers  for  them,  we  i)revailed  upon 
Mr.  Jolm  Jordan,  whose  demand  is  the  most  considerable,  to  mess 
them  at  his  house.  And  tliougii  we  did  not  absolutely  engage  for 
the  payment  of  tlieir  demand,  yet  as  we  assured  tiiem  of  our  influ- 
ence in  procuring  tliem  satisfaction  in  case  tlie  ollicei"s  should  be 
niiable  to  pay  them,  we  have  tlie  greatest  reasons  to  believe  these 
assurances  from  us  were  their  principal  inducement  to  entertain 
tliese  gentlemen.  They  now  resort  to  iis,  and  we  must  look  up  to 
the  Honorable  the  Congress.  "We  must  dotliat  justice  to  theoflicers 
of  the  7th  regiment  to  mention  tliat  none  of  tiiese  demands  relate 
to  tliat  corps  except  tlie  trilling  sum  of  XG  10s  Od  due  to  Micliael 
Bartges,  and  that  the  residue  is  entirely  for  the  lodging  and  ac. 
commodation  of  tiie  liGlh  regiment. 

The  Committee  have  been  higlily  homn-ed  and  very  hajipy  in  tiie 
testimony  they  have  received  of  the  approbation  of  Congress,  re- 
si)ecting  liieir  former  conduct  toward  tiie  ollicers  and  soldiers,  pris- 
oners here.  We  could  not  be  idle  spectators  of  tlie  distress  tliese 
gentlemen  were  reduced  to.  We  could  not,  as  a  Committee,  avoid 
taking  notice  of  their  application  ;  neither  could  we  place  them  in 
a  situation  which  would  have  been  less  expensive,  without  treating 
tiiem  in  a  manner  different  from  that  recommened  to  us  by  the 
Honorable  the  Congress,  who,  we  hope  will  in  the  present  case, 
suffer  our  conduct  to  ))ass  witiiout  censure,  and  order  in  what  man- 
ner these  people's  demands  are  to  be  satisfied. 

We  beg  leave  to  ask  if  the  former  resolve  of  Congress,  permitting 
the  oflicers  to  come  at  times  from  their  places  of  residence  to  Lan- 
caster, for  the  purpose  of  settling  with  and  paying  their  men.  and 
receiving  the  necessary  receii)ts  for  their  rations,  are  to  be  deemed 
still  in  force,  and  whether,  upon  application  of  the  soldiers  for  shoes 
or  any  necessary  clothing  (those  api)lications  now  Ijecoming  fre- 
quent), this  Committee  shall  provide  them,  at  the  Continental  ex- 
pense V  We  shall  steadily  persist  in  carrying  into  execution  evei-y

In  Committee  for  Lancaster  County, 
Lancaster,  April  11, 177G. 

Gentlemen  :  We  received  your  Letter  of  the  30"»  March  a  few 
Days  ago,  but  as  the  Committee  of  the  wiiole  county  was  appointed 
to  meet  shortly  after,  the  consideration  of  the  same  was  postponed 
until  tliis  Time. 

Your  Information  with  Respect  to  our  having  had  much  Trouble 
before  we  could  get  the  Gun-Smiths  to  Work,  was  well  grounded. 
We  for  our  own  Parts  think  our  Time  well  bestowed  in  forwarding 
a  Business  so  essentially  necessary  to  the  Well  Being  of  the  Com- 
munity. It  would  have  given  us  the  highest  Pleasure  to  have  found 
the  event  of  our  Labours  correspond  with  our  Inclinations. 

The  Gun-Smiths  residing  in  this  Borough  met  us  in  Committee 
this  afternoon.  Some  of  them  have  proposed  to  furnish  us  with 
thirty  Rifles,  in  six  Weeks,  others  with  the  same  quantity  in  two 
or  three  months,  and  a  few  wno  are  not  so  strong-iianded  with  a 
lesser  numl)er  within  those  Terms.  They  ii.sist  on  the  Price  of 
£4.10  per  Rille  (to  be  made  with  wooden  Boxes)  and  say  they  can 
get  £5  from  the  neighboring  Governments  for  such  Work.  We  had 
received  no  Instructions  from  you  and  therefore  could  enter  into 
no  particular  Stipulations  with  them.  Tiiis  Board  have  had  no  op- 
portunity to  confer  with  the  Gun  Smiths  in  the  county  on  this  Sub- 
ject, but  will  attempt  it  as  soon  as  i)0ssible.  We  perceive  clearly 
that  your  Body  have  judged  with  the  greatest  Propriety,  in  fixing 
tiie  Number  of  ISIuskets  made  by  each  Workmen,  as  the  Proportion 
by  which  the  Rilles  are  to  be  furnished.  Your  Desire  of  Co-oper- 
ating with  us  tfc  not  immediately  applying  to  our  Smiths,  least  it 
should  impede  our  Musket  work,  demand  our  acknowledgments. 
We  cannot  think  that  our  Gun-Smiths,  even  while  they  are  making 
of  Ritles,  should  altogetlier  throw  aside  the  Musket  Business. 

We  conceive  it  our  Duty,  Gentlemen,  to  intimate  to  you,  that 
the  chief  obstacle  against  the  Finishing  of  the  Rifles  speedily,  con- 
sists in  the  Want  of  Locks.  There  is  Reason  to  believe  that  some 
of  our  Workmen  have  bought  up  a  Quantity  of  Locks,  which  they 
would  not  willingly  spare  to  their  Neigiibours,  who  are  not  so  well 
])rovided.  A  Recommendation  from  your  Honourable  Board  to 
such  l^ersons  to  supply  others  with  those  articles,  at  a  generous, 
tho'  not  unreasonable  Price,  might  be  attended  witii  good  effects. 
We  suggest  this  Matter  to  you  for  your  consideration. 

We  have  also  to  request  that  you  would  be  pleased  to  furnish  our 
Conunissioners  with  an  additional  Sum  of  INIonoy,  in  order  to  dis- 
charge the  Balhuices  due  to  the  different  Tradesmen  for  Muskets,

pensibly  demand  tlieir  Money  wiien  tliey  have  completed  their 
Work.  Our  Ciun-Smiths  particularly,  feel  the  Want  of  Cash  as  we 
have  precluded  tliem  (or  attempted  it)  from  all  other  Work,  until 
the  public  Necessities  are  sui)plied. 

The  Field  Ohicers  of  this  County  have  required  of  us  some  more 
copies  of  the  Articles  of  Association,  and  the  llules  and  Kegula- 
tions  for  the  better  Government  of  the  military  associators.  Tliose 
already  sent  up  to  us  by  you,  have  not  been  suflicient  to  answer  the 
Purpose  of  this  County.  We  therefore  request  you  will  transmit 
us  a  few  more  copies,  in  order  that  one  general  System  may  prevail 
amongst  us. 

Amid  your  more  important  Business,  we  beg  to  be  favoured  with 
an  answer  to  our  Letter  of  the  16"'  March,  respecting  the  allowance 
to  be  made  for  the  Muskets,  and  also  to  this  Letter  as  soon  as  may 
be  consistant  with  your  Convenience.  We  shall  then  be  enabled 
finally  to  close  with  our  Gun-Smiths,  and  thereby  greatly  expedite 
this  necessary  Service. 

We  are.  Gentlemen,

he  objected,  that  during  his  sliort  stay  in  Philad.  he  conceived  he 
had  it  in  his  Election  eitiier  to  goto  York  or  Reading.  And  that 
he  was  then  a  Stranger  to  a  fact  which  now  weiglis  greatly  with

with  this  disease.  He  has  two  young  children  with  hii;i.  one  at  the 
Breast  of  ;M^\  Dullhunty  who  have  not  had  that  disorder.  The 
Parents'  feelings,  under  such  circumstances,  were  strong  Induce-

the  Privates  who  are  Prisoners  are  stationed,  he  recpiests  to  be  per-

to  our  little  Village  called  Lebanon  Town.  We  are  Sarry  to  In-

such  as  are  belongs  to  Men  in  Trade  who  cannot,  nor  will  not,  rent

Philadelphia,  Maij ;?«""',  1776. 
To  the  Committee  of  Inspection  and  Observation  for  the  County  oj 

Lancaster. 

We  are  under  frequent  Necessity  of  addressing  you  ui)on  Subjects 
of  publick  Concern,  of  which  the  present  is  not  the  most  unim- 
portant. It  is  upon  Occasion  of  the  Uneasiness  and  Dissatisfac- 
tion, that  we  are  told  have  ])revailed  in  some  ])arts  of  the  County, 
on  account  of  the  high  Prices  to  which  many  of  the  imported  Arti- 
cles of  Merchandize,  and  some  Necessaries  of  Life  have  advanced. 
But  before  we  proceed  further,  it  is  proper  to  declare  our  Opinion 
that  the  Scarcity  productive  of  these  high  Prices,  is  not  an  artificial 
but  a  real  one,  proceeding  from  the  late  absolute  iirohibitions  of 
one  important  Branch  of  our  Trade,  and  the  Risque  and  Danger 
which  have  attended  every  other. 

From  wliatever  Source  a  general  Discontent  arises,  it  cannot  fail 
in  this  critical  Season  of  our  Affairs,  to  have  the  worst  CoiKsequences, 
but  in  our  Capacity  as  Guardians  in  some  Measure  of  the  publick 
AVelfare,  it  would  give  us  infinite  Satisfaction  if  the  Evil  in  ques- 
tion, whicii  will  be  removed  with  better  Times,  could  be  referred  to 
its  true  Cause,  the  peculiar  Situation  m  which  the  Country  is 


524  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

placed,  rather  tliaii  to  a  general  Inclination  in  individual  Trades, 
to  Rapaciousness  and  Extortion.  If  even  it  should  be  supposed 
tiiat  Avarice  lias  no  small  Sliare  in  producing  this  Complaint,  this, 
although  higlily  blameable  should  be  patiently  submitted  to,  for  at 
what  Time,  or  in  what  Country,  has  there  not  been  some  sordid 
]\Iinds  ready  to  i)rey  upon  tlie  publick  Necessities.  Sucli  Disjwsi- 
tion  to  extortion  may  indeed  be  but  tooconnnon,  we  find  it  prevail 
vvliere  at  least  one  of  tlie  Motives  to  it  mentioned  above,  cannot  be 
pretended.  AVe  have  seen  one  of  tiie  Articles  of  our  own  produce. 
Flax,  lately  raised  in  price  to  twice  its  former  Value. 

We  know  not  where  a  Remedy  can  be  applied,  for  a  Knowledge 
of  human  nature  should  teacli  us,  that  so  Inordinate  and  crafty  a 
Vice  as  Avarice  has  Ways  to  elude  all  the  Force  and  Restraints  of 
Authority,  and  truly  in  such  Cases  the  Interposition  of  Power 
would  sometimes  produce  more  mischievous  Consequences  than  the 
Evil  it  affected  to  cure. 

We  lament  as  the  greatest  Misfortune  any  Cause  that  has  a  Ten- 
dency to  sow  Discord  among  us,  and  promote  Dissention,  at  a  Time 
wlien  nothing  short  of  the  closest  Union  can  save  us  from  Destruc- 
tion. We  lament  that  Clamours  sliould  be  excited  where  they  can- 
not but  be  imavailable ;  we  would  rather  our  Countrymen  should 
consider  whether  the  real,  although  temporary  Inconvenience,  tliey 
now  feel,  may  not  by  care  and  Industry  be  converted  into  as  real 
and  ])ermanent  Benefits.  It  may,  if  rightly  improved,  teach  us  the 
Art  of  supplying  our  own  Wants  by  our  own  Hands.  Had  it  not 
been  for  tlie  excessive  Dearness  of  foreign  Linnen,  pi'obably  we 
sliould  not  have  tlie  present  Prospect  of  relief  in  that  Article,  wliicli 
the  abundant  Quantities  of  Flaxseed  lately  sown  affords  us.  Hap- 
pily there  are  few  Wants  which  this  Country  cannot  of  itself  sup- 
ply ;  if  we  look  about  us,  every  Farm  can  afford  some  Substitute 
for  almost  every  necessary  Article  that  is  now  imported  ;  these  need 
not  be  pointed  out,  being  well  known. 

It  is  these  Sentiments  wiiich  only  can  produce  a  chearful  Acquie- 
scence under  the  present  Circumstances  of  our  Affairs,  and  a  de- 
termined Spii-it  of  Exertion  to  resist  the  Efforts  of  Tyranny:  such 
Sentiments  we  expect  will  be  inculcated  by  all  Men  of  understand- 
ing and  Infiuence  ni  their  respective  Neiglibourhoods,  and  such 
we  make  no  doubt  from  a  Sense  of  your  publick  Duty,  as  well  as 
from  your  Patriotism,  and  well-known  Attachments  to  the  common 
Cause,  you  will  lose  no  Opjiortunity  whatever  to  excite.

Gentlemen  :  Yesterday  moriiins  before  day  all  the  prisoners 
of  "Warr  stationed  at  this  place  absconded  from  their  lodging  and 
also  tiieir  waiting  men.  The  Niglit  before  tliey  made  Preparations 
to  go  a  Fishing,  as  they  sometimes  amused  themselves  tiiat  Way, 
by  means  whereof  they  were  not  suspected  till  Yesterday  Evening. 
Barrington  went  off  Yesterday  about  Eiglit  O'clock,  on  pretence 
to  be  one  of  tlie  Fishing  i)arty,  and  went  by  the  way  of  Grubb's 
Forges.  Two  men  are  sent  after  him  and  hope  he  will  be  brought 
before  you,  before  this  Comes  to  hand.  This  morning  the  whole 
Family  with  wliom  tliey  Lodged  were  Examined  on  Oath,  touch- 
ing the  matter,  but  no  Intention  of  their  Deserting  or  Obsconding, 
nor  which  way  they  toock  can  be  Discovered.  But  it  is  Generally 
thought  here,  that  tliey  have  made  towards  New  York  by  private 
Roads  over  tlie  mountains.  We  have  dispached  persons  to  Jones's, 
Stump's,  llehrer's,  &  Emrick's,  on  tlie  mountain  side,  to  alarm  the

I  do  Certify  that  I  saw  Major  Rogers  on  Tuesday  night,  between 
the  hours  of  9  &  10  o'clock.  &  that  Cap.  Murray  desired  him  to  re- 
pair to  his  Quarters  at  that  time  as  lie  wanted  to  go  the  Rounds, 
&  after  that  he  was  playing  Billiards  with  Dr.  Allison,  and  before 
the  game  was  ended  he  went  down  stairs  &  in  a  few  minutes  after 
he  went  away  Cap.  Murray  came  in  the  Room  to  inquire  after  him. 
I  observed  that  Cap.  Murray  was  very  particular  with  him  &  would 
not  suffer  liim  to  walk  unless  he  attended  him.

In  Committee,  Lancaster,  :.\7''  Juhj.  177G. 
Sir  :  Your  Express  arrived  liere  last  Night  between  ten  &  eleven 
o'clock,  with  the  Ordinance  of  Convention  for  disarming  tiie  Non- 
Associators,  and  the  Circular  Letters  to  the  Commanding  Otlicers 
of  the  Battalions  of  Associators  in  this  County,  and  tiiis  Morning 
about  S  o'clock  we  dispatched  three  Expresses  to  different  parts  of 
the  County,  with  a  circular  Letter  and  Ordinance  to  each  of  the 
commanding  officers  of  the  Battalions  agreeable  to  the  orders  of 
Convention,  so  that  by  twelve  or  one  o'clock  to  Day  we  expect 
those  officers  will  be  possessed  of  them  &  have  no  doubt,  will  do 
every  thing  in  their  power  to  forward  the  march  of  the  militia. 
We  shall  with  great  cheerfulness  agreeable  to  the  commands  of  the 
Honourable  Convention  "aid  and  assist  them  as  far  as  in  our  power 
to  carry  the  Recommendation  of  Congress  into  the  most  immediate 
&  effectual  execution  by  providing  them  with  every  necessary  which 
we  possibly  can."  We  have  assisted  such  Companys  as  were  ready 
or  nearly  so,  with  Cash,  Camp  Kettles  it  a  few  Muskets  and  Bay- 
onets, &  our  Gunsmiths  have  been  busy  for  a  few  Days  past  in  re- 
pairing their  arms,  but  we  think  it  our  Duty  to  mention  to  the  Con- 
vention that  our  Stores  are  nearly  exhausted.  We  have  distributed 
our  Muskets  &  Bayonets  so  that  we  have  hardly  sufficient  in  good 
order  to  relieve  (with  decency)  our  necessary  Guards.  Our  Tin- 
workers  are  out  of  Tin  so  that  no  more  Camp  Kettles  can  be  ex- 
pected from  them,  and  we  have  taken  up  the  chief  part  of  the  cash 
to  be  found  amongst  the  money'd  Men,  which  we  have  distributed 
amongst  the  officers  to  enable  tiiem  to  advance  something  to  such 
of  their  People  as  stood  in  need  of  it,  and  beg  lieve  to  submit  it  to 
the  Convention,  whether  Moneys  should  not  be  immediately  lodged 
liere  \n  proper  Hands,  to  be  paid  by  direction  of  the  Committee  to 
the  officers  who  march  witli  the  Militia  for  tiie  use  of  their  Men, 
most  of  whom  require  some  little  necessarys  &  many  of  them  have 
Family's  with  whom  they  would  choose  to  leave  a  few  Shillings. 
We  should  be  happy  to  have  it  in  our  power  to  supply  these  or  any 
other  necessary's  to  our  Militia  as  they  march— their  applications 
are  to  us— they  expect  here  to  be  equip'd  and  assisted,  and  it  gives 
us  pain  to  see  their  disappointment.  Our  Tin  workers  say  there  is 
no  Tin  to  be  had  in  Piiiladelphia ;  should  there  be  any  in  the  pub- 
lick  Magazines  to  spare,  we  could  keep  our  Tin  Men  employed  in 
making  Kettles  &  Cantins  for  the  Troops.  We  shall  use  our  best 
endeavors  to  keep  our  Gunsmiths  busy,  and  shall  do  everytliing  in

Gentlemen:  The  inclosed  is  Copy  of  a  Letter  which  I  received 
last  Night  by  Express  from  Colonel  Burd.  And  as  the  Moneys  for- 
warded by  the  Council  of  Safety  to  me  to  advance  to  tl)eCompanys 
who  sliould  march  from  the  respective  Battalions  in  this  County 
amounted  to  but  Six  Thousand  nine  Hundred  &  sixt5'-six  Dollars 
&  «■'  of  a  Dollar,  tliat  is  696?  Dollars  for  each  Company  of  ten  Com- 
pan vs.  I  could  not  comply  with  tlie  request  of  Col".  Burd,  liowever, 
as  he  mentioned  that  liis  whole  Battalion  were  to  march  I  ventured 
to  send  liim  (^ne  Thousand  DolLirs,  and  at  the  same  time  wrote  him 
that  I  should  send  an  Express  to  the  Council  of  Safety  &  perhaps 
Avould  have  it  in  my  Power  to  furnish  him  better  wlien  he  reached 
Lancaster. 

Colonel  Galbraith's  Battalion  we  are  told  will  move  on  Saturday 
next,  and  as  he  likewise  may  make  a  demand  exceeeding  his  pro- 
l)ortion  of  the  Moneys  forwarded  to  me  by  the  Council  of  Safety. 
I  am  requested  by  the  Committee,  to  ask  the  directions  of  the 
Council  of  Safety  in  these  and  similar  Cases  during  the  Marcli  of 
-Militia,  &  should  the  Council  think  proper  to  forward  a  further 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  llEVOLUTIOX.  531 

Sum  for  the  Commanding  Officers  of  the  Battalions,  to  request  that 
it  may  be  done  as  expeditiously  as  possible  that  the  Men  may  pro- 
vide themselves  with  necessarys.  The  Militia  of  Lancaster  seem 
rather  backward,  owing  principally  to  this,  that  many  of  our  spirited 
officers  and  young  Men  are  gone  as  Escorts  to  the  Prisoners  sent 
from  hence  &  upon  their  return  have  hopes  they  will  turn  out  to 
tlie  assistance  of  tlieir  Brethren.  There  are  a  few  of  the  Militia 
from  Cumberland  County  arrived  here,  who  say  that  large  Num- 
bers are  on  their  way  down.  Tlie  Battalion  from  NortluiinVierland 
are  also  soon  expected.  Such  numbers  passing  tliro  cannot  be  bil- 
leted on  the  Tavernkeepers,  and  as  our  Barracks  are  now  empty 
(except  a  few  sick  wlio  could  not  be  removed)  they  are  cleaning  out 
for  the  reception  of  tlie  Troops  as  they  pass.  Providing  for  tiiem 
there  will  be  less  expensive  than  at  tlie  Taverns  on  Billet.  But  as 
to  this,  with  the  mode  of  providing  for  them,  the  quantity  of  pro- 
visions to  be  allowed,  tlie  api)ointment  of  a  Commissary  to  provide 
for  tliem,  the  Fund  and  mode  of  payment,  &c.,  the  Committee  beg 
the  directions  of  the  Council  of  Safety  by  the  return  of  this  Mes- 
senger. 

I  am  also  directed  to  mention  to  the  Council  that  we  shall  im- 
mediately require  a  large  Sum  to  pay  the  Expence  of  tlie  Escorts 
and  Waggons  sent  with  the  Prisoners;  they  took  near  Sixty  Wag- 
gons. Under  30s.  a  day  we  could  not  get  a  wnggon  to  go  at  this 
Season  of  the  Year,  &  even  at  that  rate  were  under  tlie  necessity 
of  sending  Parties  of  armed  Men,  intodifferent  Townsliips  to  press 
them  &  bring  them  in.  We  had  to  engage  that  theysliould  bei)aid 
here  &  hope  tiie  lion'''-  Council  will  enable  us  to  make  them  satis- 
faction on  their  return. 

We  have  frequently  requested  orders  respecting  the  Baggage  of 
the  officers  who  went  from  Lebanon,  &  should  be  glad  to  know  how 
Ave  are  to  dispose  of  it. 

We  are  also  considerably  in  Debt  to  the  Workmen  and  otliers  for 
the  Works  carried  on  by  the  orders  of  Congress  at  the  Barracks 
here.  Two  Companies  of  Guards  will  likewise  have  their  pay  due 
on  the  17"'  instant  &  will  want  it  to  equip  them  for  their  march  to 
Piiilad'.  Tiiese  things  will  take  we  think  about  fifteen  Hundred 
Pounds,  which  we  hope  we  may  be  enabled  to  pay. 

Tlie  Committee,  to  encourage  the  Farmers  to  turn  out  with  their 
Waggons  to  the  assistance  of  the  Inhabitants  of  Pliilad'.  have 
made  a  kind  of  promise  that  every  Waggon  should  have  a  Bushel 
of  Salt  there  on  paying  the  price  fixed  by  the  Council  of  Safety,  & 
desire  me  to  mention  that  by  this  promise  many  have  engaged  to 
go,  <t  hope  the  Council  will  i)lease  to  let  them  have  some.

Lancaster,  December  the  3P',  1770. 

Sir  :  Your  favour  of  the  15"'  instant  by  George  Strahly  I  received 
with  fifteen  thousand  Dollars  for  the  purpose  of  advancing  the 
Militia  a  Month's  pay,  and  such  other  public  uses  as  tlie  Commit- 
tee of  Lancaster  may  find  necessary. 

Tiie  Council  by  tliat  Letter  directed  the  Committee  to  appoint  a 
Commissary  to  supply  tlie  Militia,  who  on  their  way  tlirough  Lan- 
caster might  be  lodged  in  our  Barracks  with  the  Rations  allowed 
by  Congress,  and  as  to  the  subsistance  of  the  Battalions  of  our 
County  on  their  march  to  join  General  Washington  left  it  to  tlie 
choice  of  the  otiicers  of  each  Battalion  to  receive  a  penny  \)\  Mile 
or  appoint  a  Commissary  to  supply  them  with  Rations. 

Agreeable  to  those  orders  the  Committee  appointed  ]Mr.  Christian 
Wirtz  Commissary,  and  finding  from  many  reiiresentations  that  it 
Avould  be  dillicult  to  |)rocure  provisions  for  the  Troops  on  the  Road, 
it  that  the  Taveriikeepers  exacted  an  extravagant  i)rice  for  siu;h  as 
they  did  furnish,  we  ventured  to  direct  Mr.  Wirtz  not  only  to  siiii- 
ply  all  the  Trooi)s  who  should  pass  thro'  here  &  request  it,  with 
the  accustomed  Rations  while  here,  but  to  furnish  them  with  Ra- 
tions to  last  them  to  Philadelphia.  This  mode  of  furnishing  them 
appeared  to  the  Committee  the  most  certain  &  least  expensive,  & 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  REVOLUTIOX.  533 

seemed  the  most  agreeuble  to  many  of  the  othcers  of  the  Parties  on 
their  way,  as  tiiey  had  tiieir  Baggage  Waggons  with  tliem  &  at  tliis 
season  of  the  yearconld  carry  Bread  A:  Beef  for  three  or  fonr  Days. 
To  these  was  added  where  recjuested  some  Potatoes  or  Turnips  iV  a 
little  Salt,  so  that  at  tiieir  Stages  tliey  iiad  notiiing  to  request  of 
tlie  Landlords  but  House  Room  &  the  use  of  Kettles  to  dress  tiieir 
victuals,  and  some  dressed  it  before  tliey  left  this.  Tlie  known 
scarcity  of  Provisions  on  tlie  Road  &  backwardness  of  the  ]niblick 
Housekeepers  to  furnish  it,  induced  the  Committee  thus  far  to  ex- 
ceed the  orders  of  tlie  Council ;  they  however  hope  the  measure  will 
be  approved  of  by  the  Council  and  that  their  Commissary's  just  ac- 
counts will  be  allowed. 

On  the  23'  of  this  month  tlie  Committee  were  honoured  with  the 
Council's  Letter  of  the  9'"  instant,  mentioning  that  the  Council  had 
sent  a  quantity  of  Powder  to  our  care.     We  think  it  our  Duty  to 
mention  that  no  Powder  hath  come  to  our  charge.     A  quantity  of 
Powder  did  arrive  in  Town  a  few  Days  before  the  receipt  of  that 
Letter,  and  General  Miftiin  being  then  in  Town  with  Col.  Bird  from 
Ileadmg  &  they  having  appointed  Mr.  George  lioss,  jun.,  a  Deputy 
Quarter  Master  here,  that  ]\iwder  was  l)y  the  General  ordered  into 
Mr.  Ross's  care,  &  is  very  jirobably  the  I'owder  meant  by  the  Coun- 
cil.    On  receipt  of  the  Letter  I  waited  on  the  General,  who  men- 
tioned that  ]\Ir.  Ross  would  take  charge  of  those  things,  and  that 
he  &  ]\Ir.  Bird  would  have  the  proper  Guard  appointed.     However 
no  Guard  is  as  yet  appointed,  I'v:   the  Committee  cannot  look  on 
themselves  as  having  the  charge  of  those  things  without  further 
directions,  &  by  the  by,  if  the  Guard  is  to  be  selected  from  the  In- 
habitants of  Lancaster  or  places  adjacent,  the  committee  cant  help 
thinking  themselves  more  proper  Persons,  than  Strangers,  to  choose 
and  direct  it.     The  same  thing  has  happened  with  regard  to  the 
Beef,  &c.,  sent  up.     About  the  same  time  and  daily  since  Waggons 
have  arrived  witli  tliose  articles.     They  were  ordered  by  the  General 
&  Mr.  Bird  into  the  care  of  Mr.  Ross  as  they  arrived.     After  a  few 
days  I  found  those  articles  by  Tickets  with  the  Waggoners  were 
directed  by  Mr.  Snowden,  assistant  Commissary,  to  my  charge,  & 
some  of  the  Waggoners  called  on  me  to  receive  their  Loads  &  pay 
their  (Carriage,  but  as  Mr.  Ross  had  received  several  quantities  I 
directed  the  residue  to  him  it  continue  to  do  so,  to  prevent  confu- 
sion in  the  accounts,  and  left  Mr.  Ross  to  pay  the  Carriage,  as  it 
would  appear  absurd  in  me  to  bring  a  charge  for  Carriage  of  articles 
addressed  to  me,  when  I  could  render  no  account  of  them. 

I  am  directed  by  the  Committee  to  mention  that  one,  Mr.  Louis 
Lorbenier,  a  French  Priest,  who  by  a  Commission  from  Congress 
appears  to  be  a  Chaplain  in  the  Continental  Service  resides  here 
(liaving  left  Philadelphia  at  the  time  of  tlie  alnrni).  He  has  a  Cer- 
tilicate  from  Mr.  J.  Gibson  of  a  Month's  pay  «i  his  Rations  being 


534  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

due  to  him  early  in  this  Month  amounting  to  Hi  dollars.  He  seems 
to  be  out  of  Cash,  &  liath  applied  to  us  for  his  pay.  We  were  sen- 
sible of  the  impropriety  of  our  paying  him,  but  at  his  earnest  en- 
treaty trouble  the  Council  with  his  case  for  their  directions.  By 
his  own  account  he  seems  to  have  been  very  active  in  our  favour  in 
Canada  A:;  is  apprehensive  of  very  severe  treatment  should  he  fall 
into  tlie  Hands  of  the  Enemy. 

I  have  tiie  pleasure  to  mention  that  General  Mifflin's  presence 
has  roused  the  Militia  of  this  place  to  arms.  Some  Companies  of 
Colonel  Ross's  Battalion  marched  yesterday,  some  go  to  day,  *fc 
others  to  morrow,  &  tiiey  will  be  followed  by  the  Town  Companys 
of  Colonel  Slougii's  Battalion  the  next  day. 

The  Council  do  me  great  honour  by  their  approbation  of  my  con- 
duct expressed  in  your  Letter,  &  by  the  confidence  placed  in  me. 
I  think  I  shall  not  abuse  it,  &  am  luippy  when  1  have  it  in  my  power 
to  render  an  essential  service  to  my  injured  Country. 
I  have  the  honour  to  be.  Sir,

Lancaster,  January  the  7'",  1777. 

Sir  :  Your  Letter  of  theo"*  instant  respecting  the  Plunder  in  tlie 
possession  of  the  Hessian  Prisoners  was  lianded  to  me  this  afternoon 
by  Express.  I  liave  not  yet  had  an  opportunity  of  communicating 
the  Contents  of  it  to  tiie  Gentlemen  appointed  with  me  to  examine 
them,  but  shall  do  it  this  Evening  if  possible  &  endeavor  to  morrow 
to  do  as  requested  with  all  the  address  we  are  masters  of.  Your 
Express  also  lianded  to  me  a  number  of  Addresses  to  tiiepublickin 
English  &  German  wliicli  the  Committee  will  have  distributed  as 
directed.  Also  the  Resolves  of  the  Ilon''''^  Congress  &  Council 
of  Safety  in  respect  to  the  Continental  Currency  a  copy  of  which  is 
now  in  the  Hands  of  the  Printer  to  translate,  with  directions  to 
print  1000  in  German  &  the  like  number  in  English  agreeable  to 
your  Orders,  which  when  done  will  be  circulated  thro'  the  Country 
&  we  hope  will  have  a  very^  good  effect. 

I  had  the  honour  to-day  by  tlie  return  of  Cap'.  Murray,  of  men- 
tioning the  arrival  of  the  Hessian  Prisoners  here.  That  on  ac. 
count  of  the  uneasiness  of  the  Inhabitants  we  had  hired  a  i)lace 
out  of  Town  at  a  small  distance  from  tlie  Barracks  as  a  JNIagazine 
for  the  Powder  and  Stores  sent  up  here  :  &  that  we  had  agreed  to 
take  into  Continental  pay  a  Company  of  about  Sixty  of  the  Militia 
to  do  duty  as  Guard  to  the  Prisoners,  Stores,  &c.,  until  relieved  by 
others  who  the  Hon'''''  Congress  or  Council  should  ai)point  to  that 
duty.  AVith  some  other  Matters  as  to  which  we  beg  the  Sentiments 
of  the  Council, 

I  am,  Sir,  Your  most  obed'.  humble  Serv',

THE  COMMITTEE  TO  PRESIDENT  WHARTON. 


Lancaster,  the  J""'  January,  1777. 
Sir  :  In  obedience  to  the  Orders  of  the  Council  in  your  Letter  of 
the  5"'  instant  to  Mess''.  Lowman,  Ilubley,  Bowsman  &  myself,  we 
have  had  the  Hessian  prisoners  paraded  &  their  Baggage  and  apart- 
ments searched,  and  I  am  directed  by  those  Gentlemen  to  mention 
to  the  Council  that  we  could  not. find  anything  which  had  the  ap- 
pearance of  plunder,  except  two  or  three  pieces  of  old  brass  Desk- 


53G  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

mounting,  not  worth  taking  away.  'In  the  Bundle  of  one  of  them 
was  a  Sheet  whicli  the  possessor  assured  us  he  bought  at  Princeton 
to  make  Shirts  of.  &  with  another  was  a  Silver  Spoon  which  he  as- 
serted he  brought  from  Germany,  &  as  it  had  the  marks  of  age  ct 
German  workmanship  we  left  it  with  him.  Nothing  else  of  value 
was  to  be  found  in  their  Baggage  or  apartments.  There  is  a  Silver 
AVatch  with  one  of  tl.-e  officers  of  the  Militia  here,  which  was  handed 
to  him  by  one  of  the  Hessian  Serjeants  to  get  repaired.  In  the 
outer  Case  of  tlie  Watch  is  a  neat  advertisment  of  a  watch  Maker 
iu  Baltimore  with  a  small  piece  of  paper  charging  one  Lieut.  Mause 
with  repairs  &  to  tiie  Chain  is  a  Seal  with  the  Letters  F.  W.  M., 
and  iu  the  Hands  of  one  of  the  Inhabitants  here  is  a  Silver  Watch 
made  by  Johnston  of  Liverpool,  wliicli  shew^s  the  Day  of  the  Month, 
&c.,  for  which  the  person  gave  a  Serjeant  of  the  Hessians  29  Dol- 
lars. These  Watches  we  have  ordered  those  Persons  to  keep  in 
their  Hands  &  not  part  with  them,  till  they  have  furtlier  directions, 
botii  the  Serjeants  asserting  tiiey  are  their  own  property  fairly  pur- 
chased &  not  plundered. 

I  beg  leave  to  hand  the  Council  a  List  of  the  Tradesmen  among 
the  Ilession  prisoners.  A  design  of  luiving  the  prisoners  paraded 
&  their  Names  called  over  once  or  twice  a  week  by  the  othcer  of  the 
Guard  induced  me  to  order  the  Serjeants  of  the  Prisoners  a  Day  or 
two  after  their  arrival  to  furnish  Lists  of  their  Companys,  &  cu- 
riosity prompted  me  to  require  tiie  Trades  of  sucli  as  were  Trades- 
men to  l)e  marked  opposite  their  Names.  Upon  examining  the 
Lists  cS:  linding  so  great  a  number  of  Tradesmen  among  them,  I 
thought  it  a  duty  to  the  public  to  mention  it  to  tlie  Council,  &  hope 
it  will  jilease.  I  have  no  doubt  but  numbers  of  them  would  gladly 
be  employed,  &  should  it  be  thought  proper  to  suffer  it,  it  might 
not  be  amiss  to  fall  upon  some  method  of  preventing  the  Master 
Workmen  from  outbidding  one  another  for  their  Services.  Tliis 
was  the  Case  with  the  other  prisoners  when  here.  They  would  gladly 
have  worked  for  small  wages  rather  than  be  confined  in  the  Bar- 
racks; hands  were  scarce,  the  Master  Workmen  kept  raising  their 
wages  from  time  to  time  to  keep  them  from  changing  places,  the 
Fellows  soon  knew  their  own  importance  &  made  tiieir  own  Terms, 
&  the  advance  to  tliem  was  of  course  charged  by  the  Masters  to  the 
publick. 

Mr.  Cin-istian  Wirtz  yesterday  presented  to  the  Committee  the 
Ilesolves  of  Council  appointing  iiim  Town  Major,  with  the  Resolves 
for  the  Committee  here  to  '•  direct  a  sufficient  number  of  aged  or 
infirm  Persons  wlio  are  unfit  to  bear  the  fatigues  of  a  Campaign  to 
be  enrolled  under  tlie  Town  Major  for  the  purpose  of  guarding  the 
Prisoners  in  the  Barracks  and  the  ammunition  &  Stores  during  tiie 
absence  of  the  Militia,"  with  the  Resolve  respecting  tlie  march  of 
the  remaining  Town  Companys  of  Col.  Ross's  &  Col.  Slough's  Bat- 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  REVOLUTION.  537 

talions.  The  Committee  always  with  cheerfuhiess  endeavour  to 
carry  the  Resolves  of  Council  into  execution,  but  upon  considera- 
tion order  me  to  mention  that  they  think  it  impracticable  to  find 
such  a  Guard,  after  marching  tiie  Militia.  They  have  tried  several 
methods  to  get  one  or  two  of  these  Companys  to  marcli,  but  all  to 
no  purpose,  as  the  language  among  tliem  is  that  all  shall  go  or 
none  will  go.  We  had  therefore  some  tlioughts  of  making  up  a 
Company  from  among  those  wlio  have  had  the  fatigue  of  the  flying 
Camp  &  are"  lately  returned.  They  seem  entitled  to  a  share  of  the 
easy  military  duties  amongst  us.  Having  no  Families  or  occupa- 
tions ill  the  Town  they  would  be  the  more  attentive  to  their  duty. 
A  couple  of  the  Block  Houses  at  the  Corners  of  the  Stockades  which 
command  a  view  of  the  Stockades  within  &  without  miglit  very 
easily  &  at  a  small  expense  be  fitted  up  for  their  reception  &  there 
they  might  constantly  &  very  comfortably  reside  and  draw  their 
Rations.  We  thing  such  a  Company  by  writing  to  tlie  several 
Colonels  who  have  had  Men  in  the  flying  Camp  would  be  imme- 
diately had,  &  the  Companys  here  being  then  upon  an  etiual  foot- 
ing we  hope  would  march  without  furtlier  objections.  We  are  sorry 
so  many  objections  have  appeared,  and  it  gives  us  pain  to  be  under 
the  necessity  of  troubling  the  Council  so  frequently  on  the  sub- 
ject. 

We  are  not  yet  favoured  with  the  directions  of  tlie  Council  re- 
specting tlie  allowance  to  be  made  to  the  Tavernkeei)eis  for  pro- 
viding victuals  for  the  Militia,  and  as  there  are  many  instances 
where  the  Men  have  their  own  Provisions  with  them  or  draw  it 
here  &  liave  it  cooked  at  the  Taverns,  we  should  be  ghtd  to  know 
the  allowance  to  be  made  the  Tavernkeepers  in  those  Cases  for  their 
Fire,  Candle,  &c.,  &  trouble  with  them. 

Colonel  Mackay  writes  me  that  the  first  Division  of  his  Battalion 
left  Carlisle  on  the  ir"*  instant,  and  that  the  2'^  &  last  were  to  leave 
it  on  the  12'^'',  on  their  way  to  Philad".  by  way  of  Lancaster,  where 
he  hath  requested  Quarters  ready  for  620  Men,  of  wliieli  I  have 
given  the  Quarter  Master  notice,  &  should  the  publick  Houses  be 
too  much  crowded  with  other  troops,  we  must  endeavour  to  pre- 
vail on  the  private  Houses  to  take  them  in, 
I  have  the  honour  to  bf , 

Sir,  your  most  obed'.  humble  Serv'., 

WILL.  ATLEE. 

An  oQicer  from  Col.  McKay  is  just  arrived  to  provide  Quarters 
for  part  of  the  Battalion,  &  desires  me  to  mention  that  tlie  Bat- 
talion is  very  badly  off  for  want  of  shoes  &  stockings,  &  would  be 
glad  two  or  three  hundred  pair  of  each  could  be  forwarded  so  as  to 
meet  them  on  the  road.  Il-e  says  they  purpose  waiting  here  three 
or  four  days  to  rest  the  Men.

of  Lebanon,  a  Copy  of  which  is  here  inclosed.  He  hath  frequently 
applied  to  the  Committee  here  that  he  might  have  a  hearing  before

clined it.  They  have  however  ordered  to  me  to  take  his  Recogni-

at  present,  being  seventeen  in  a  room,  but  in  the  course  of  a  week 
we  shall  be  able  to  give  them  more  room,  as  the  carpenters  are  now 
busy  in  laying  in  Floors  in  the  additional  Buildings,  and  when  that 
is  done  we  can  stow  away  a  fexo  more.  Tliey  have  not  received  the 
least  insult  since  they  came  here,  &  agreeable  to  the  request  of  the 
Council  of  Safety,  the  Inhabitants  seem  disposed  to  treat  them  with 
civility.  Tliey  are  kept  from  having  intercourse  with  any  but  such 
persons  as  the  Committee  permits  to  see  them,  &  the  Rev'.  Mr. 
Helmutt  of  the  Lutheran  Concrregation,  the  Rev'.  ]SIr.  Ilelfensteiu 
of  the  Calvinist  Congregation  &  Mr.  Ileyney  of  the  Moravians  with 
the  Members  of  Committee  are  ai)pointed  their  Visitors;  &  the 
two  former  propose  sometimes  giving  them  a  Sermon  in  German. 

As  a  Guard  to  them  &  the  Stores  placed  here  the  Commitee  find 
themselves  under  the  necessity  of  taking  into  Continental  pay  about 
Sixty  or  Seventy  of  the  IMilitia  of  the  Town,  to  do  duty  until  others 
m.iy  be  ordered  to  relieve  them.  In  the  Guard  none  will  be  ad- 
mitted wiio  have  sliown  a  backwardness  when  called  upon  to  march 
with  the  Militia,  &  in  a  conference  with  Colonels  Ross  ifc  Slough 
we  have  agreed  to  fix  them  in  the  following  manner:  there  is  one 
Comp'y  of  Col.  Ross's  remaining  here  &  two  of  Col.  Slough's;  one 
of  Colonel  Slough's  is  immediately  to  inarch;  from  the  other  & 
Cap'.  Musser's  (of  Ross's)  are  to  be  taken  the  Men  who  turned  out 
to  join  the  Camp.  Tiiese  together  will  we  think  anjount  to  about 
sixty  or  seventy,  &  are  to  do  duty  as  one  Company  under  one  set  of 
otiicers,  who  are  to  be  taken  as  equally  as  may  be  from  the  two 
Companys  &  be  charged  monthly,  &  as  to  those  who  have  skulked 
we  are  determined  to  be  active  in  securing  them  cS:  forwarding  them 
after  their  Companys. 

The  Inhabitants  being  uneasy  at  the  Powder  &  some  other  Stores 
being  placed  in  our  Court  House  &  new'  Goal,  we  liave  taken  the 
House  at  Mr.  Fortinee's  out-Lot  (a  place  known  to  the  Members 
from  hence)  for  its  reception.  It  seems  the  most  proper  i)lace  about 
the  Town  for  a  iNlagazine,  &  Mr.  G.  Ross,  jun.,  or  some  Person  un- 
der his  direction  will  we  believe  begin  this  day  to  lemove  the  Pow- 
der, &c.,  tliere.  It  is  within  view  of  the  Guard  House  at  tlie  Bar- 
racks ifc  projier  Gentries  will  be  placed  to  secure  it.  "We  are  obliged 
to  prouiise  ^Ir.  Fortinee  that  the  publick  will  make  good  to  hira  any 
damages  which  his  Building  may  sustain  by  the  Powder  &  Stores 
being  placed  there. 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  REYOLUTIOX.  54! 

As  our  Barracks  are  now  taken  up  with  the  Prisoners,  we  are 
again  obliged  to  place  the  Militia  &  Troops  passing  tiiro'  here 
among  tlie  Taverns.  They  are  much  averse  to  it,  &  many  of  them 
took  down  their  signs  upon  tlie  occasion.  However  a  deputation 
from  tlie  Committee  went  round  amongst  them,  &  promised  to  use 
our  iiiUuence  with  the  Council  to  have  their  allowance  increased  to 
12d  or  15,1  p^  Meal,  upon  which  the  Q^  Master  was  desired  to  pro- 
ceed in  placing  the  Troops  with  the  Tavernkeepers  &  tliey  have, 
tho'  much  against  the  Grain,  accepted  them.  AVe  beg  the  Council  s 
sentiments  on  tliis  matter.  The  prices  of  every  kind  of  pvm'isions 
amongst  us  are  greatly  raised,  »&  it  is  really  difficult  to  get  tlie  nec- 
essary supplys  for  the  Town  from  the  Farmers  as  heretofore,  an 
evil  which  if  not  soon  remidied  may  be  productive  of  bad  conse- 
quences. 

By  order  of  the  Committee, 

I  have  the  honor  to  be,

WILLIAM  ATLEE  TO  PRESIDENT  REED. 


Lancaster,  December  y'^  C0'\  1779. 

Dear  Sir  :  I  have  the  honour  of  youi-  Letter  of  the  22'  instant, 
repecting  tlie  Lands  called  tiie  Indian  Town,  in  or  near  Connestogoe 
Mannor,  said  to  be  purcliased  lately  by  Mr.  John  Musser  from  John 
Penn,  Esquire ;  and  had  hopes  that  among  my  old  Papers  Ishould 
have  found  some  Memorandums,  which  Avould  have  afforded  me 
the  pleasure  of  giving  Council,  with  exactness,  the  contents  of  the 
agreement  between  William  Penn  «fc  the  Indians  as  to  those  Lands. 
As  upon  the  Indians  being  killed  at  tlie  Town,  the  (then)  Sheriff, 
Jolm  Hay,  Esquire,  secured  their  Papers  and  I  took  a  particular 
account  of  them,  (witli  the  Indian  and  Country  Names  of  the  In- 
dians belonging  to  tlie  Town  &  the  Tribes  tliey  were  of).  i\:  imagined 
I  still  have  it,  tho'  after  two  Days  search  among  old  dusty  Papers 
I  can't  yet  lay  my  Hands  upon  it. 

I  have  found  the  List  which  I  then  took  of  the  Indians  who  were 
killed  at  the  Town  &  in  the  Work  House  in  Lanca.«ter,  and  tlie 
rough  Draught  of  a  Letter  which  I  penned  from  the  Sheriff  to  the 
then  Governor,  to  whom  the  Deeds  and  Papers  were  (I  think)  sent. 
In  this  Draught  is  a  short  account  of  the  Papers;  but  not  so  par- 
ticularly set  forth  as  in  the  List  or  Memorandum  I  took  for  myself. 
However  here  follows  extracts  from  it  relating  to  them  : 

"A  writing  on  Parchment  purporting  an  article  of  jieace  &  amity 
concluded  on  between  the  Governor  of  Maryland  &  C;ip'.  Civility, 
Chief  of  the  Connestogoe  Indians;  Massawanoe,  Chief  of  the  Cha- 
wanas;  Wewinjock,  Chief  of  the  Connoyes,  and  Owakelo,  Chief  of 
the  Delaware  Indians  in  behalf  of  themselves  A;  the  Indians  under 
their  Government." 

"A  Letter  (which  seems  to  be  under  the  lesser  Seal  of  tiie  Pro- 
vince) signed  W.  Keith,  dated  Philadelphia,  May  26"',  1719.  directed 
to  Civility  »&  the  rest  of  the  Indian  Chiefs  at  Connestogoe." 

"A  writing  i)nri)orting  a  Letter  (which  seems  to  be  under  the 
lesser  Seal  of  the  Province)  signed  W.  Keitli,  dated  at  Philad",  o'" 
May.  1719.  directed  to  Civility  or  Tagotelessa  and  the  Indian  Chiefs 
at  and  near  Connestogoe." 


544  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

"A  writing  purporting  a  Letter  signed  James  Logan,  dated  the 
22'  4  "'".,  1717,  directed  to  Civility  &  tlie  otlier  Indian  Chiefs  at  Con- 
nesLogoe." 

"A  paper  (which  seems  to  be  under  tlie  lesser  Seal  of  the  Province) 
signed  James  Logan,  Seer'y,  &  purporting  an  order  of  Council  held 
at  riiilad',  Sept.  y^  2S"\  170S,  or  request  to  the  Indians  to  appre- 
hend Nicole  Godin  on  suspicion  of  several  treasonable  practices 
against  the  Government,  itc." 

'•An  article  of  agreement  of  the  three  &  twentieth  Day  of  the 
second  month,  called  April,  in  the  year  one  thousand  seven  Hun- 
dred &  one.  Between  William  Penn,  Proprietary,  &c.,  on  the  one 
part,  and  Connoudaytoh,  King  of  the  Indians  injiabiting  in  or  about 
the  River  Sus(iualiannah,  and  Widaggh,  Bocpieeash  ;  and  Andaggy- 
junkquagh.  Chief  of  the  said  Nations  of  Indians;  Wopatbllia,  King, 
and  Jiemoytungth  and  Pemoyajooagh,  Chiefs  of  the  Nation  of  the 
Shawonnah  Indians;  and  Abookaffoough,  Brother  to  the  Emperor 
for  and  in  behalf  of  the  Emperor  (and  Wecwhinjougli,  Cheequit- 
tagh,  Tekyewsan  &  Woapatkoa  Chiefs)  of  the  Nations  of  the  In- 
dians inliabiting  in  and  about  tlie  northern  part  of  the  River  Poto- 
niack  in  the  said  Province,  for  and  in  behalf  of  themselves  and  suc- 
cessors &  tiieir  several  Nations  and  people  on  the  other  part." 

This  last,  I  think,  is  the  article  which  relates  to  those  Lands,  & 
as  near  as  I  can  recollect  tliey  were  to  remain  for  the  use  of  a 
Family  of  tlie  Mingo  Tribe,  of  which  Shehaes  or  Jo.  Hays,  an  old 
Indian  man  who  was  killed  at  the  Town,  was  then  the  head,  and 
their  or  his  Descendants,  &  upon  that  Family's  extinction,  to  re- 
main to  the  Prourietors  ;  but  as  my  memory  may  not  serve  me,  so 
as  to  give  a  true  state  of  the  affair,  at  this  distance  of  time,  I  shall 
as  you  request,  endeavour  to  get  some  information  froin  Mrs.  Su- 
sanna Wriglit,  &  shall  in  the  meantime  have  a  further  search  for 
my  memorandum  respecting  it. 

Mr.  Musser  was  at  my  House  the  day  after  I  received  your  Let- 
ter, »&  I  then  learning  from  him  that  he  had  not  yet  received  a  Deed 
for  the  Lands  nor  paid  the  whole  purchase  money,  I  noticed  him 
against  proceeding  further  in  the  affair,  &  advised  him  to  wait  on 
the  Council  respecting  it ;  which  he  assured  me  he  would  do  in  the 
course  of  a  few  Days.    He  has  since  left  Lancaster  for  Philadelphia. 

Mr.  Barton  hopes  he  will  be  allowed  to  take  the  Crop  in  the 
Ground  for  the  benefit  of  himself  &  the  young  Family  his  Father 
has  left  behind,  as  it  was  put  in  before  they  had  any  notice 
of  the  sale  by  Mr.  Penn,  or  the  claim  of  the  State,  and  Mr.  Hall 
the  agent  will,  in  the  Course  of  a  Day  or  two,  go  and  take  posses- 
sion of  the  place  for  the  State. 

I  shall  not  fail  to  deliver  your  Message  to  my  Brother  as  soon  as 
I  see  him.  which  I  hourly  expect.  I  find  there  are  some  Persons 
amongst  us  who  purpose  pushing  him  for  Councellor  in  case  of  the 


AND  MILITIA  OF  THE  REVOLUTIOX.  545 

resignation  of  Col.  iSmitli.     What  his  own  sentiments  are  on  this 
subject  I  don't  yet  know,  but  I  think  I  shall  advise  liim  against  it.

Siu;  The  Indian  liigiits  for  tiie  land  in  the  Canastoga  mennor 
were  lodged  in  my  hands  and  lay  with  me  for  some  considerable 
time.  Upon  an  order  (from  whom  I  can't  at  present  recollect)  I 
delivered  the  writing  to  Cap'".  Thomas  McKee  and  took  his  lleceipt 
for  the  delivery  of  the  same,  to  the  person  who  sent  the  order.  The 
Grant  of  the  land  to  the  Indians  gave  them  a  Right  to  the  land  no 
longer  than  they  pleased  to  live  on  the  same.  They  had  no  Right 
to  sell  if  they  left  it.  This  I  think  was  the  Tennor  of  their  Right. 
I  will  look  for  the  Receipt  when  I  go  home  and  send  it  to  you.

and  resisting  tlie  Laws  of  this  State,  speaking  contemptously  against

Washington  in  a  mean  manner,  to  the  greatest  Astonishment  and 
vexation  of  the  spirited  and  well  Affected  people  and  bad  example

ercising days  and  paying  tlieir  Fines  for  non-attendance,  as  also  the 
Assessment  for  hiring  tiie  Yolimteers,  and  we  have  given  them  all 
the  indulgence  and  patience  we  Lawfully  could  to  avoid  the  dis-

Advertisements  in  their  district  wherein  we  appointed  a  day  re- 
quired them  to  meet  and  pay  their  Fines  and  Volunteer  Assess- 
ments. Offered  to  take  the  same  without  any  further  (Jharge  or 
cost,  but  contrary  and  against  all  the  good  intents  and  meaning 
they  refused  to  make  payment  thereof  and  continued  in  their  old 
absurd  way;  menaced  and  abused  the  Collecter  in  a  rough  man- 
ner, expressed  sundrey  menacing  words  against  him,  that  he  should 
be  a  dead  man  if  he  Attempted  to  demand  the  Fines  or  any  part 
thereof.  In  consequence  of  wliich  lie  demanded  Assistance  and  we 
Furnisiied  him  with  seven  men,  with  whom  lie  proceded  against 
them  and  made  sundrey  distresses,  but  soon  the  disaffected  Assem- 
bled about  Forty  in  Number,  all  provided  with  Clubs,  and  resisted 
the  Collecter  in  i)erforming  his  duty.  He  then  retired  from  that 
place  and  demanded  a  more  Sullicient  Number  of  Assistance.  We 
then  applied  to  Col".  Clerk  and  Col".  Rogers  for  thirty  men  of  their

The  Representation  of  Christian  Wirtz,  Commissioner  of  Pur- 
chases for  LaJicaster  County, 

.Sheweth,  That  he  hath  since  his  api)ointment  as  Commissioner 
of  Purchases  found  the  Business  so  extensive  as  to  require  at  least 
One  Clerk  and  Two  Assistants,  and  as  it  is  well  known  that  the 
allowance  for  purchasing  of  Supplies  for  the  use  of  the  Army  is  In- 
adequate to  the  Expences  and  Fees  for  Clerks  and  Assistants,  lie 
prays  The  Hon''"  Executive  Council  may  be  pleased  to  (4rant  Al- 
lowance for  Clerk  and  Assistants,  In  order  that  he  may  be  enabled 
to  make  the  purchases  required  from  s''.  County.  It  cannot  be  ex- 
liected  that  the  Commissioner  would  Sacritise  his  private  Property 
for  that  of  the  Public.  As  he  intends  setting  out  from  the  City  to 
Day,  he  begs  Council's  Determination. 

And  will  ever  pray.  A:c..  Sec,

WILLIAM  ATLEE  TO  ilEXRY  MILLER. 


Lancaster,  ye  2Dth  March,  i7Sh 

Sir:  I  have  just  now  received  the  enclosed  Letter  &  Warrant 
from  the  Chief  Justice  with  a  request  to  forward  it  to  you  by  Ex- 
press. 

lie  writes  me  that  tliey  have  a  Letter  from  Governor  Jefferson 
informing  tliat  Gen.  Green  witli  4,000,  cliietiy  militia,  has  had  an 
encasement  witli  Lord  Cornwallis  and  about  12.500  regulars,  about 
a  mile  and  a  half  from  Guilford  Court  House,  on  Thursday  the  loth 
instant.  The  action  continued  an  hour  &  a  half,  &  was  very  bloody. 
General  Green  tliought  proper  to  retire  about  <i  mile  &  a  half  in 
good  order.  &  Cornwallis  was  so  crippled  that  he  did  not  attempt 
to  follow.  The  engagement  would  have  been  renewed  the  next 
day,  but  it  proved  rainy,  &  Captain  Singleton  who  was  in  the  action 
iS:  brought  the  intelligence  frcm  camp  to  Governor  Jefferson,  then 
came  away;  he  supposes  there  must  liave  been  another  action  as 
soon  as  the  weather  cleared  up,  as  Gen'l  Green's  army  were 
in  high  spirits  and  resolved  upon  it  again.  It  is  conjectured  (the 
returns  not  being  made)  that  we  have  had  about  300  killed  & 
wounded,  among  the  former,  M.ijor  Anderson  &  Captain  Barrett 
nf  the  Maryland  Line;  and  among  the  latter.  General  Stevens, 
shot  in  tlie  thigh  <&  brouglit  off,  &  Captain  Fontleroy,  shot  ;ilso  in 
the  thigh  &  left  on  the  field.  The  enemy  are  said  to  have  between 
500  &  700  killed  &  wounded. 

Also,  that  on  the  same  a  battle  was  fought  between  the  French 
and  British  fleets  near  the  Capes  of  Virginia  ;  it  continued  an  liour 
&  45  minutes.  The  British  were  considerably  superior  in  number 
A:  force,  having  12  ships  to  9,  and  tiie  consequence  was  tliat  the 
British  got  into  Chesapeak  &  the  French  returned  to  Illiode  Island, 
without  a  vessel  being  taken  or  lost  on  either  side. 

You  will  oblige  me  if  you  will  mention  to  Mr.  Zacliary  Shugart 
of  your  town,  tliat  I  shou'd  be  very  glad  to  see  him  liere,  if  he  cou'd 
make  it  suit  him  to  take  a  ride  this  far, — tiie  Council  having  re- 
quested me  to  make  some  inquiry  of  him  respecting  some  transac- 
tions of  some  of  our  people  while  on  Long  Island. 

Please  my  compliments  to  Col.  Hartley  &  your  Family. 
I  am.  Sir,  with  esteem.

WILLIAM  ATLEE  TO  SAMUEL  J.  ATLEE. 


Lancaster,  //''  i^i  Sept.,  17S1. 

Deak  Brother  :  Tlie  bearer  of  this,  Mrs.  Bradburii,  is  in  pur- 
suit of  her  Ilusbaud.  It  is  said  by  some  that  lie  is  iu  xs .  York.  & 
by  otliers  tliat  he  is  in  Jersey.  Siie  can  give  you  the  circumstances 
of  iiis  going  away  from  Jience. 

If  wiien  she  arrives  iu  Pliihid''.  she  should  be  able  to  learn  where 
he  is,  &  tiiat  he  is  X.  York,  she  purposes  to  go  to  liim,  but  as  that 
can't  be  done  with  safety  to  herself,  without  i)roper  i)assports,  she 
begs  me  to  write  to  you  &  request  you  will  give  her  such  assistance 
in  that  way  as  you  may  with  projiriety. 

The  poor  woman  is  much  distressed.  We  have  endeavoured  to 
prevail  with  her  to  stay  here,  where  she  has  two  Children  yet  re- 
maining, but  to  no  purpose,  &  she  is  in  a  bad  condition  for  travel, 
ling. 

I  thank  you  much  for  l:)eing  so  attentive  to  us  Country  Folks  in 
forwarding  the  Xews  tfc  Papers. 

«&  am  your  affect.  Bro., 

WILL.  ATLEE.

COL.  ADAM  IIUBLEY  TO  PRESIDENT  MOORE. 


Lancaster,  November  20'",  17S1. 

Sir  :  Inclosed,  I  transmit  your  Excellency,  the  Proceedings  of  a 
general  Court-martial,  with  other  papers,  held  for  the  Trial  of  sun- 
drey  Prisoners  of  the  Militia  on  duty  at  this  place,  for  your  Excel- 
lency's perusal  &  orders  thereupon. 

Your  Excellency  will  observe,  that  Stephen  Long  &  James  Dick, 
Two  of  the  Prisoners  are  recommended  for  a  Pardon.  Circum- 
stances, in  my  opinion  justify  tiie  lenity  of  tlie  Court,  and  I  would 
beg  to  add  (&  jiarticularly  as  I  am  requested  by  some  of  the  members 
of  y"  Court)  your  Excellency's  mercy  should  also  be  extended  to 
the  otiier  two  Prisoners,  viz:  George  Leniiare  &  Titrich  Row. 
The  whole  behaviour  of  those  lads  proceeded  (as  it  now  clearly  ap- 
pears to  me)  from  ignorance  &  a  culpable  conduct  of  some  of  the 
oflicers. 

Mr.  Ilambright  has  requested,  I  would  mention  his  situation  to 
your  Excellency  &  Council,  his  situation  with  respect  to  the  Bar- 
racks at  this  place.    Notwithstanding  his  frequent  applications  to 


550  ASSOCIATED  BATTALIONS 

the  Board  of  War,  »S:c.,  for  money  to  keep  them  in  proper  order,  he 
has  not  been  furnished  witii  a  six  pence,  nor  can  lie  pmcure  on  the 
Credit  of  the  public  even  a  person  to  sweep  the  Chimneys.  The 
Barracks  at  several  times,  for  wdut  of  sweei)ing  has  taken  file,  and 
unless  he  is  enabled  to  keei)  the  chimneys  clean,  I  fear  some  acci- 
dent will  in  the  course  of  this  winter  take  place.  As  the  Prisoners 
are  not  the  most  careful  peoi)le,  nor  would  they  care  anything  if 
they  burned  to  the  ground. 

From  those  circumstances,  your  Excellency  &  Council  will  pro- 
bably judge  it  necessary  to  gis'e  some  orders,  and  enable  the  Bar- 
rack-master to  have  them  put  and  kent  in  order.  Some  other 
necessary  repairs  are  also  wanting,  which  Council  will  likewise 
please  to  consider. 

I  wrote  your  Excellency,  some  time  hence,  res])ecting  Cartridge- 
boxes  now  in  the  Possession  of  Mr.  Henry.  I  would  beg  to  remind 
your  Excellency  thereof. 

I  have  the  Honor  to  be  with  every  respect.
